Seattle Media: May Day is a "Traffic Headache"

While the Los Angeles Times at least tells us what the May Day marches are about ("immigrant and labor rights today")and something about the marchers, local media limit their coverage to potentional traffic disruptions:
"May Day Protesters Clog Olympia Streets"-KOMO-TV.

"May Day rally, M's game could tie up traffic today"-Seattle Times.

"Major traffic delays expected downtown on Tuesday afternoon"-Seattle P-I.
Howie P.S.: These headlines don't tell us much. After all, wouldn't you expect a protest march to fill the streets with people?
