The Princeton Sidewalk Protection Act is Born
Protestors held up signs sporting tongue-in-cheek slogans such as “This is Where the Sidewalk Ends,” “Keep on the Grass,” “Defend Our Sidewalks” and “Sidewalks are a Serious Business.”
With Borchard leading on guitar, the group periodically struck up the protest’s anthem, “This Walk’s Not for the Freshman Class” to the tune of “This Land is Your Land.”
The song ended emphatically on the group’s underlying message: “We love all Freshmen, but we all understand / This walk’s not for the Freshman class!”
Ridicule of intolerance is almost always an effective tactic. Showing them to be the shallow blowhards that they are, even if it doesn't change the minds of the bigots, makes me feel better.
