And he's right. Over in the "O" unlikely bunkmates abound. One woman is wearing the Manhattan LP's "Unauthorized Protester" T-shirt. She identifies herself, however, as a feminist spiritualist, and doesn't seem to be particularly fond of capitalism. Questioned about her sartorial choices, she retorts, "I just liked the shirt, OK?"
