Turns out yesterday was World Pillow Fight Day. I know this because as I rode through Dupont Circle, I noticed that there were a lot of people gathered in the middle by the fountain. A cloud of feathers was rising. I investigated, and found perhaps 40 people wildly swinging pillows. There was occasional laughter and some screams of glee, but for the most part it was weirdly quiet for a crowd of people going absolutely bonkers.
