Richie Says :"We Once Had Riots and Revolutions in Tompkins Square Park , Now It's Yuppie Dance Parades"

We don't care much one way or the other about dance parades ,yuppie or otherwise.We were pissed though that because of the dance parade , the bus to the Rapture in Union Square wasn't stopping on avenue A.

We had our own dance parade last night! To the Chillmaster!
Whatever gramps.

In Living My Life, Goldman recounts being admonished for dancing, "that it did not behoove an agitator to dance." She further wrote "I did not believe that a Cause which stood for a beautiful ideal, for anarchism, for release and freedom from conventions and prejudice, should demand the denial of life and joy. I insisted that our Cause could not expect me to become a nun and that the movement should not be turned into a cloister. If it meant that, I did not want it."
We were drinkin' with ya Marty . History was made!
Hey Richie Degan, who commutes to the LES from Queens to latch on to events and demos organized by others: WHO do you mean by "WE"????

This guy is one of the Tompkins Square DIS-organizers who, along with Commie Carl (aka "The Troll" and "Frenchie") and Joel (aka "Caveman"), fucked up more efforts at creating a large all-inclusive effective political movement on the Lower East Side than I can recount here.

Richie is one of the lunatic fringe that makes real political activists look crazy. Unfortunately, the LES is a place where misfits like Richie can blend in....
