All complaints I have — and there are many — about urban pillowfighting boil down to the terminal cuteness of the whole affair. Laughing Squid has all the pics and links to last night's cushy conflagration at Justin Herman Plaza, including a video clip that shows a crowd of hipsters delicately bopping each other with barely any bloodlust. Dilettantes. We had more dangerous pillow fights in my parents' basement at the age of ten, and if anyone had called us a "flash mob," they would have gotten a mouthful of foam-packed dacron.
