More than 200 sign-waving and chanting protesters were arrested Saturday after blocking a Columbus Day parade for more than an hour. Police said they began making arrests after ordering the group of about 600 protesters to leave when the parade was about a block away. The 230 protesters who were arrested were charged with loitering and disobedience of a lawful order. There were no reports of violence or injuries.

This week, we officially pay attention to a building, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry. I am all for paying attention to buildings. In fact, if I were mayor (I'm not saying I will be, I'm just saying my opponent's arrogance is somewhat astounding), I would pick out a Tuesday and declare it Pay Attention to a Building Day. It would probably be scheduled sometime between Columbus Day and St. Patrick's Day.
