May Day Mostly Fizzles

Despite all the hype about their plans to disrupt business on May Day, most of the country seems to be reacting with a ho-hum, although there were a few incidents of anarchy, the major being a threat to blow up a bridge in Cleveland by a group of anarchists associated with the occupy movement. The FBI foiled it. As for protests across the country, they attracted small crowds, some vandalism, but mostly May Day was a non-event. Some of the mainstream media outlets tried to magnify them, but they were still pretty inconsequential compared to all the publicity beforehand.
