Good news for the “Stop the Machine” protesters in Freedom Plaza, bad news perhaps for the John A. Wilson Building staffers who have to work across the street from them: The National Park Service is open to extending the protest’s permit, though spokesman Bill Line said “nothing was finalized” during informal talks yesterday. Still to be determined: Which is the more effective form of democracy — the D.C. Council, on the south side of Pennsylvania Avenue NW, or the twice-daily “general assemblies” across the street?
