It's August in Washington so guess what? It's hot and humid.

TOTD: Down the thread list is the "Beck meeting" thread. The permit is issued for August 28. Is anyone going? Do you ever go to these public rallies? What would possess you to do it in Washington in the summer?

There are a handful of people that think the future of our country is more important than three hours of comfort.

OK, so Rock will be there. Anyone else?

We'll be back in the 80s today and a little higher for the weekend. This time of year, even hot days don't stay hot for long.

TOTD: You bet I go to that kind of public rally. I'm not going to Beck's thing but I belong to the 9/12 Project and we have a lot of chapters in Colorado.

I'll generally turn up for 9/12 Project events, Tea Party protests and rallies, various "fundie" religious/politcal events, and local town halls. ;)

TOTD: I generally don't attend these things.

TOTD: I'm very strongly considering it.

There are 3 different bus trips going. I know some people at work who are going. The wife and I have other plans or we'd be going as well.

TOTD: Won't be attending that particular rally but I definitely have gone to a few locally. They can be quite fun and energizing. The last one I attended was a Tea Party rally about a year ago now I think.
