Please post your updates from D.C. and from news reports here as well as your photos of the day.

Our Walter Reed salute to the troops last night was very well attended. Upwards of 800 people were there over the three-plus hours of the demonstration.

Photos and video taken by This Ain'tHell taken in daylight before the bulk of the crowd showed can be viewed here.

Their website says they had about 1500 people show up. Pathetic!

I knew that wasn't true. I was just trying to tell people that it wasn't ACORN who had the permit but another group that's been holding their event for years.

I was surprised that the Tea Party group weren't informed about the Black Family Reunion.

Dang! We missed that C-SPAN broadcast. We didn’t get home from DC until after midnight, early this am.

The committee now has a "Post-Convention" thread running. Please post your FR CONVENTION threads there, not the Rally pics, please. Post your Tea Party Rally pics here. Thanks,

Leni

Here is a link to the pictures I took of the march and rally. http://news.webshots.com/album/574653345oiZGHh

I’m sorry I couldn’t get down to Walter Reed on Friday night. I was really nervous about driving on wet roads that I didn’t know in the dark.
