2. Ahem so while my beloved tivo (best invention evvverrr!!) recorded the NCIS marathon, I and a bunch of friends successfully traversed the mayhem and chaos that was DC today to get to the rally to restore sanity at Capitol Hill. Never attended an actual rally before, and how much fun was that huh!?! :) We pushed our way into a metro line packed to capacity, then climbed up a water fountain in front of.. uhh, fuck I forgot, some museum to get a not so great but reasonable view of the stage. I saw John Legend! And Ozzie! *squeals* :) I also saw people show up in the hundreds of thousands, many of them holding funny, witty and relevant signs.. sarcasm being the theme of the day and they got it. Kudos to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert for pulling this off and for proving that not everyone in this part of the world has turned into an irrational scaredy fanatic. A good recap can be read here (if you haven't already).. this article even picked up my favorite quote of the day by Jon Stewart:
Stewart cited the importance of distinguishing between "real racists and Tea Partiers, or real bigots and Juan Williams or Rick Sanchez," because failing to do so "is an insult, not only to those people but to the racists themselves, who have put in the exhausting effort it takes to hate."
Well-said. If I was American and if Jon Stewart ran for President, I'd vote for him :)
