America could learn from countries where citizens gather in large numbers for reasons that aren’t depressing, annoying or violent. Take Belgium, where some 1,500 students recently all dropped Mentos into bottles of Diet Coke so they would explode all at once. Yes, they’re about two years late on this stunt, but now they have a world record to tell their grandchildren about. The next time people here march on Washington, they’d better be carrying toasters and Pop Tarts.
