will be along with real coverage soon, he came up and covered the rally and march. I stayed home and wrote a paper.

But we live in a totally kick-ass universe, and it always manages to deliver for me.

About twenty minutes after Michael and our friend Dennis, the editor of a small newspaper in Central Missouri, left my house, about 250 people came marching down my street, chanting and waving signs and making their voices heard.

Like I said, Michael will be along with much better coverage in a bit, but until then…

I heard them coming

Michael estimated the original march south to be about 500-strong. I would guess that about 250 came marching down my street on their way back to the camp at Penn Valley Park, behind the KC Fed.

It took between five and ten minutes for the entire group to go past.

I’ve done a bit o’ marching in my day, and any 30-block march that holds  half the marchers together going the opposite direction is a group of dedicated people who aren’t going to be moved off their positions.

It seemed like they just kept coming. I kept saying to myself “this is so awesome!”

Finally, the tail end of the group made it past, and the person who had been patiently waiting in their car for the marchers to pass stuck her arm out the window for a flyer.

I love this neighborhood.
