Most of the people I know from back home in the DC area are going to both. I won’t be able to make the trip from Seattle, though. Wish I could.

Haha, this is awesome! Somehow I missed about this, thanks for letting us know and have fun.

For others like me who apparantly live under a rock, here’s the excerpt from the Christian Science Monitor:

The “Rally to Restore Sanity” is looking for people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat, according to its official website. It is a rally for people who usually don’t have time to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs, but on this one day, might ask the sitter to stay a few extra hours so they can attend.

“If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence … we couldn’t. That’s sort of the point,” says the website.

On the other hand, the March to Keep Fear Alive is intended to counter those “dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our fear,” according to its webpage. Those who attend will get to hear “The Rev. Sir Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A.” expound on how “reason” is just one letter away from “treason.”

My husband and I are flying down from Boston!  Since we were not able to do a honeymoon, this is a little wedding gift to ourselves!

I wish I could go! Too many trips planned in October already. I know what sign I’d be carrying:

“I am not afraid of Muslims/Tea Partiers/Socialists/Immigrants/Gun Owners/Gays…but I am scared of Spiders.”

Preach it, Jon.
