Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear

I was one of those people who planned to go to the rally but couldn't, so I watched it on t.v. My favorite moment was when Yusef came out to sing "Peace Train" on the mall. It felt like two different time periods melded into one.

My next favorite thing were all the irreverant signs people made. You can see over 400 of these signs over at Huffington Post, there's also a video link. I saw signs for every American, including Tshsmom, Melanie, LOST fans, Hitchhiker's Guide fans, SNL fans, and everyone else. Gosh I wish I could have gone there. What would your sign have said?

Here are some of my favorites:

The event was real and the signs they held were real. They were making fun of the signs you normally see at political rallies.

I didn't realize it was televised....Shoot! Well, YouTube will probably have a lot of it.
