“Anti-WBEC Protests Hit Seattle,” Tom read. “They’re saying it wasn’t anything like the WTO riots in 1999, though.” He glanced over at his wife, laying face-down on their queen-size bed with her shirt pulled up around her shoulders. Clothes rubbing against her slice-and-diced back, arms, and legs bothered her more than she would admit. The doctors had pulled hundreds of glass splinters from her in the emergency room at Harborview Medical Center, where paramedics had finally taken her after the police finished with her.

She never complained, but Tom knew how painful even one deep glass cut could be; some distraction would certainly help. So now he broke his personal rule never to discuss newspaper articles while reading them.
