Suddenly looks to be..well attended.
At least outside. (Should we wear raincoats? Paging Althouse!)

    I see that the Escambia education “professionals” are well represented. No doubt their attendance is based on their concern for the children they are responsible for “educating”.

  2. Dr Alice says:

    I’d suggest telling your fellow attendees to drop their subscriptions to the paper and stop buying the products of any company that buys advertising. That really fries me. Good luck.

    If I weren’t such a believer in the new civility, I’d think this was a target-rich environment.

  4. mojo says:

    Checked the Claymore lines?

  5. Dave E. says:

    That’s not a news story, that’s a big wet kiss.

  6. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Target-rich, indeed.
    “Pryor has been heavily involved in the local labor movement since 2005. He began organizing demonstrations in 2008 for the Progressive Student Alliance, a nonpartisan student organization active in issues involving social injustices, labor rights, gender equality, gay rights, and environmental justice.”

    Barf. – And I agree with Dave E. on the news story.
