The subject line reflects the number of steps for the day on my pedometer. There were at least ten times more people at the Rally to Restore Sanity and I'm thrilled to have been one of them.

It was enormous fun. Being there was my favorite part. Being there with smofbabe, benveniste, and debgeisler magnified my fun by a factor of ten, or maybe a hundred. Such good friends. The signs were awesome. I laughed at so many things that it's hard to choose a favorite, but the mash-up between Yusef Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) and Ozzy Osbourne took my breathe away with its sheer unexpectedness. Of everything said, Jon Stewart's Closing Comments came out tops and then some.

I made notes and took pictures of entertaining signs. With luck, I'll get some of them posted, oh, sometime in here. But tonight? Tonight I am going to sleep, sleep, sleep.

Oh, attendance must've been more than ten times that -- one early estimate was on the order of six billion.

Loved the bit where they had people start counting off, to get an accurate count once and for all.

Alas, my mind immediately flashed to counting votes at the WSFS Business Meeting. So while I was cracking up laughing, the horrifying notion of that many people at a WSFS Business Meeting was flooding my frontal cortex.
