Keeping Fear Alive

Went to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

It brought out quite the crowd, lots of costumes.

Lots of signs. Mostly funny, some political.

The crowd was unlike any I've ever seen. It was difficult to move around, walk to the bathroom or anywhere. These sitters refused to move when the boys tried to make it back from the bathroom.

The woman with the large legs in the above picture continued to lay down. After snapping the picture I had to walk over and lift the boys over her.
I struggled to carry the 2 boys as seen in the above picture. I came close to dropping them over the large legged woman.

Show was a bit disappointing. Instead of playing some exciting hip hop you don't stop, wave your hands in the hair like you just don't care, everybody say ho, type of hip hop, the Roots went soft and played some crap with John Legend. That was followed by 2 "comedians" that were intent on making the crowd do the wave and laugh on cue. After Jon Stewart and Colbert came out, they had Father Guido Sarducci who hasn't been funny since 1978, give a drawn out "benediction" that was pretty stale. That's when we left to beat the crowd.
