Rally Report

The first-of-its-kind Rally for America, somewhat mistakenly called a pro-War rally, went off today in Denver, and we were very pleased with the turnout. The Serious Side is pro-War, and it's difficult to get serious people to turn out for a rally. We got about 2000 people, and they were all in good spirits, they cleaned up after themselves, ignored the few naysayers gathered across the street to chant mindless slogans. (One of the local news reports claimed that some people had shown up thinking we were an anti-war rally. Oops.)

The speakers were generally brief and on point, the singing was good, the cheering was frequently punctuated with "U-S-A, U-S-A," and a good time was had by all.

The color guard has performed at a number of Presidential inaugurations. They wear military uniforms from each of the conflicts we've had to endure in our history.

Notice the sign highlighted in red. Yes, it's anti-war. And you know something? Nobody pushed, shoved, kicked, shouted at, harrassed, or attacked the guy holding it. Imagine that.

Thanks to Neil Dobro, Bill Eigles, Anne Freeman, and the rest of the steering committee who made this thing happen. Links to newspaper and TV stories as they appear.
