Leave us hearken back to 1987, when John Blake "stumbled upon a slice of American history":
As the City Hall demonstration threatened to veer out of control, a lanky man suddenly walked up to the women protesters. He appeared to be in his mid-20s, and he wore a short afro and overalls.There's no word on whether or not he treated them all to fishes and loaves afterward (but deep down, you know he did).
The women's shouts trailed off when they saw him. The young man had an annoyed look on his face and, motioning with his index finger, he summoned the women to a corner in the room. They formed a circle around him, some still mumbling in anger.
"What did we come here for?" he asked them.
They gave an answer in unison.
He asked another question and they gave another collective answer.
As the man posed his questions, the anger of the women subsided. It seemed like this was an exercise that they had all rehearsed beforehand to keep the women's anger in check.
The women then took a collective breath, pivoted and resumed their demonstration, with the young man leading the way this time. The entire episode didn't last more than five minutes.
