solidarity rally

over lunch i dropped in on the solidarity rally down the street. it was very well attended, much more of a crowd than i expected on a cold dreary day. the local unions (both public and private sector) had a major presence.

it was a nice show of support, but also fairly low-key. the point was just to show solidarity and also, i suppose, to warn governor corbett (our new GOP governor) not to get any ideas. it looked big enough to get some attention and there was a news helicopter hovering over the crowd when i arrived, so maybe it helped.
