@tsarstepan,
Ladies and gentlemen! TsarStepan has left the building!

I'm on my way to the Port Authority to get there early.

@ossobuco,
Probably means something like, don't nail signs to the trees.

Wow! You get in early! I'm going to the mall around 10-ish. If you'd like some company, you'd be welcome to come stand with me (wherever that is...) and my friends. Prepare for all mobile networks to go down for calls, but texts should still go out.

In effort to prevent robot spam, but give you my contact info (since PMs are still down), here is my Google Voice number.

Text me your number.

@failures art,
Got in on an earlier bus. Arrived in DC at 05:05 this morning. Been at the rally for an hour.
Tres nippy!

We saw a convoy of buses headed down the NJ turnpike this morning, all decked out for the rally. Looks like it's gonna be fun, from the spirit we saw.

I love Jon Stewart, and we don't see enough of Stephen Colbert on the telly here.

On the other hand, I think Glen Beck exemplifies some sort of malignant disease.

Jumping on the METRO. If you are my friend on facebook, I'll probably be posting updates as I can with the network being very high traffic.

They are having this telecast on the Texas State Capitol steps today.

Earlier in the week, I was looking on craigslist, and they were looking for people to work today and tomorrow at the event. Today to hand out surveys, and tomorrow to record the data obtained.

I am attending an "Exploring Our Moon Centers: Kundalini for Women" workshop today, but will be making a few extra dollars working the keyboard tomorrow.

How on earth would one travel with an open fire?

And, who would think to bring their picket fence??

Will be watching for updates! Have fun!

@chai2,
The Chicago folks were denied their permit application for a similar rally in Grant Park. They said they were going to hold it anyway under the freedom of assembly clause in the Constitution.

Have fun tsar and cyclo! Can't wait to hear about your experience.

I soooooooo wish I was there.
