The requisite report from the Rally for Sanity and/or Fear

Yes, that was the full official title, as you well know if you witnessed the tremendous Three-Way Finale at the last Big Quiz Thing. Now then…

As I'm sure you've heard, a lot of people weren't able to fully experience the rally as they'd hoped. I cruised down stupid early Saturday morning (left Brooklyn at 5:30am), reached the National Mall at noon, just as the event officially began and the Roots took the stage. For the first two hours, my friends and I were jammed in at the very edges and fairly far back, standing shoulder to shoulder (zero exaggeration) with a weak view of one JumboTron and the semicapability to hear what was going on onstage (none of Stewart and Colbert's jokes really connected with me, although I did follow the whole Cat Stevens–Ozzy Osbourne "Peace Train"–"Crazy Train" battle, and even predicted the appearance of the O'Jays to sing "Love Train"). Disappointing, yes, but others had worse (some friends gave up after spending 45 minutes on a Metro platform, unable to cram onto a train), and it was still a pleasant, politically energizing experience. We left after two hours, wandering around the periphery, taking in the crowd.

Typical me, I didn't take a whole lot of photos, but highlights nonetheless…

Clever.
Apparently, there were a lot of "only Hitler is Hitler" signs, but this was the best I saw.

Adults only, please.

Right next to me while I was packed in.

The view from the Capitol.

A handful of guys passed by me in robo-President outfits; the big guns plus, for some reason, Polk, who's a sentimental favorite of mine. "Young Hickory 3000," I called him.

Among the much much more abstract advantages to players are quicker leveling to 60,
the revamping concerning Dustwallow Marsh with new quests,
brand-new daily quests concerning dungeons and battlegrounds, and many type balance modifications.
Major-market books that were originally self published include Eragon, Mutant Message Down Under, The Christmas Box, and many
others. This is one of the best burst talents you will get and
is a must have if you want to burst anyone down.

Just a bit of your time giving out your opinion on something.
Whatever your motivation for working from home, you
most likely want to spend more time at home, save gas money from
your commute and above all-make extra money at home.
Of course there are a lot of other parts to the puzzle, but
when you get training on marketing and how to sell a product, then
you will start making money in no time.

This is why pregnant women seem to eat whatever is in front
of them and will destroy anything that stands in their way of them eating.
Make a good, healthy and strong diet meal plan a
follow it strictly and full willpower. I think when you finished the reading of
my article all of your puzzling will be gone away.
It leads one to wonder if it is the hormone or calorie restriction that is responsible in inducing weight
loss in the first place. In spite of all of
these, it is possible to treat this condition by discovering
what treatment options are available to you. Homeopathic HCG
Diet is an exceptional approach of dropping body
weight with no ache. Wait 12 weeks between third and fourth rounds, 20 weeks between fourth and fifth rounds, and 6 months between fifth
and sixth. We should admit that just about every coin has two sides.
And while hc - G might work wonders for some, in the
long term, it might not prove to be a permanent solution if the person. There
is much misinformation on the net on eating correctly, with foods being labelled
as "super" or "miracle".
