Pictures from today's rally



It was a cool day down by the Fed Courthouse. The anti-1251 demo drew about 300 people, and I estimate about 125 or so on the other side of the street protesting us (and probably 1/3 of them were St Thomas More Roman Catholic high-school kids on lunch break). Hm.

The mood was fairly upbeat, we all know there is a battle ahead but we were all glad to be there. It was really great not to seem like the only person who is willing to support women's rights in this state.










What a great day.

  1. I was there too. It was great! I was told that we had 400 people on our sign up list. There was at least another 100 who didn't get signed up. Outstanding!

    Thanks for the family picture. My wife, daughter and I were proud to be a part of this rally. I'm not sure if I agree with you about Stan though. I think it took some courage and political risk for him to join us. From what I've seen it seems that he fought this bill as much as any of the Democrats.

    But again I thank you for the pictures and the great coverage of the rally in your blog. Keep it up.

  3. Nick, I was commenting and it turned into another diatribe, er, post. So you can read it there.

    Thanks for the encouragement!
