the dead man did not speak and some in the crowd questioned whether or not he was listening but people still came forth some protesting our state of continuous war others complained about global warming and how their lives had been changed forever more than a handful carried placards and screamed about abortion and women’s rights those concerned about civil rights for people of color residents and would-be-residents appeared only when the cameras were flashing and their voices we quickly muted by a series of rants on self-interest topics in the end the dead man did not speak nor show any true emotion which would be expected from a corpse so when the dead man was rotated and returned to the senate no one was really surprised
