Dider - Horsehooey! ;-) There was nothing in Dave's post, or in the
photos, to indicate that he was doing what you suggest he was. Now,
could he have challenged himself far, far more in terms of how he shot
these? Absolutely. He obviously set out to do this the kind, gentle, and
easy way - and that's what he did. But as to the political take, well,

The pictures have too much point'n'shoot appeal for me. Just join the 
crowd, click, and that's it. You wrote the ratio of demonstrants vs. 
policemen was 200 vs. 2000 - why did you not document this
interesting contrast?

My impression was that you did not only want to show your pictures, but 
that you were looking for an opportunity to kick your personal concept
the enemy in the ass. The LUG's indeed the wrong place for that. That's
I agree with Mark, that your post was rather backhanded.
