Today's Protest a Resounding Success!!!
Admittedly we had what you might call a light turnout, but we were undeterred! From 10 am to 1 pm we marched in front of the Colbert Report Building (54th Street between 10th and 11th Avenue, in what is appropriately called Hell's Kitchen!). I would have gone longer, but I didn't wear my walking boots, and it turns out that holding a sign in windy weather eventually makes your back hurt. But many people honked, several gave me thumbs up, and a few people said they would probably have helped only they have jobs.
Stephen Colbert himself entered the building at 11, and I'm not tooting my own horn when I say that, when we exchanged glances, he looked a little scared. He probably saw the tireless determination in my eye and the flame in my heart. Repent, Stephen! Repent!
Today I'm just a majority of one. But I think I planted some seeds.
