Hey, kids, take a day off. We’ll call it a “protest”

Oh, to be young again.

Nearly 40,000 students from across Southern California staged walkouts to protest proposed immigration legislation Monday, blocking traffic on four freeways and leaving educators concerned about how much longer the issue will disrupt schools.

The protests are believed to eclipse in size the demonstrations that occurred during the anti-Proposition 187 campaign in 1994 and even a famous student walkout for Chicano rights in 1968.

They continued today, for some reason, although apparently the rain may have put the kabosh on much more than downing a few forties. Oh well. Time off is time off.

Down with the man.
