i know it's a lie. i want it to be true.

The Jeff, ctwriter, and I attended the Connecticut rally in support of the Wisconsin unions yesterday.


There was signage:

Wisconsin SIEU support rally February 2011 047  Wisconsin SIEU support rally February 2011 023 Wisconsin SIEU support rally February 2011 020

Wisconsin SIEU support rally February 2011 008 Wisconsin SIEU support rally February 2011 001 Wisconsin SIEU support rally February 2011 032

As you can see, Uncle Sam was in attendance. (My favorite signs: "Walk like an Egyptian," and "Paws for Wisconsin.")

It was a good crowd, motivated and cheerful, and as you can see turnout was good. Most popular improvised chant of the day: "STOP THE BASTARDS!" But we did determine that the old standards are still best.

Being Yankees, the rallyers kept off the flowerbeds:

Afterwards, at the grocery store:

ctwriter: "Hey, look at that! It's Grail Mix!"
The Jeff: "Whaddaya know? I wonder if it cures unhealing wounds...."

And in conclusion, a pair of awesome boots and Connecticut's most beloved symbol, The Charter Oak:

In other news, it's snowing again.
