Observed

Outside of a large, ritzy hotel in downtown San Diego: a union demonstration complete with chants about retirement rights, people in red t-shirts, reporters, posters/signs on sticks, and a person in a
skunk costume.
They had assembled on a street corner just in front of the hotel. I passed by them, cutting closer to the hotel and when I looked up, I saw someone sort of leaning out of a fourth floor window listening to the protesters: a maid for the hotel. I think she was listening to the people who were protesting for better wages for people like her--while she was at work. I wonder if she wanted to join them? --Lu
