Getting glares -- and smiles
Advertisements [?]
Carried this sign yesterday at a protest. Quite a few honks and thumbs up. One guy, stuck at the stop light, glared at us and gunned his engine before peeling out when the light changed. It was really cold and the wind kicked up; my old bones started cussing and I wimped out after about forty minutes. Left the sign with one of the college kids who was able to jump up and down to stay warm.

There were about thirty of us, and a couple of journalists took pics and interviewed a few people. Sadly, there's nothing in the paper today. Not one word. Odd, seeing as how the thirty teabaggers who protested on tax day got inflated to 100 with their picture on the front page. Maybe they'll give tomorrow's gathering some coverage. Or not.
