Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear

Tim, Julie and I attended the Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear that was estimated at 10 million by Jon Stewart so it must be true :-)  It was a picture perfect fall day that was tons of fun with 215,000 of our closets Comedy Central friends.  Note Glenn Beck had 87,000, but from a weight standpoint, the crowds were equal :-)  Because of the fighting over numbers, the National Parks do not give estimates. An indicator of the size was Metro stated that there were 330,000 riders by 11am on that Saturday and that is the normal total number they see for an entire Saturday during that time of the year.  It was bigger than Glenn Beck's rally is all this crowd cared about - that and having a good time.  The creativity of these individuals I will place against any other rally event on planet earth.

This was my favorite sign.  I have no idea who this guy is, but his sign is brilliant!

This was Tim's favorite sign.

Jon Stewart was selected as the most trusted news person in America - seriously, he was.  That shows just how screwed up our normal "news" channels have become when a comedian is the most trusted person.  He is for good reasons....

We had to go to Tim's favorite DC restaurant - Ben's Chili Bowl.
