Watching the Watchmen

-- by Dave

I spent Saturday in Lynnwood covering the Watchmen on the Walls gathering at the local convention center. I'll be filing a written report later today at The Big Con.

In the meantime, I thought I'd share some photos.

There were about 150 protesters outside. Attendees inside numbered well under a hundred. It was wet and rainy, but spirits were unusually good.

A group of the younger attendees watched the protesters with evident disgust from the upper-level walkway outside their gathering hall.

And a group of young people (mostly about the same age) outside spotted them taking pictures and tried to address them. However, there was no interaction between the two sides that I could observe.
