This is our Woodstock
But with more port-a-potties
And less gonorrhea
(This reporter’s favorite poster that he didn’t manage to get a picture of at the Rally to Restore Sanity)
Just wanted to make it known that Elephant Journal is every bit as brave as a seven year old girl.
Yes, unlike NPR and other news outlets mercilessly (and hilariously) mocked by Stephen Colbert for forbidding employees to attend, Elephant allowed this intrepid writer to wade out into the crowd at the Rally to Restore Sanity, to come face to face with ironic hipsters, painfully sincere activists, and even, yes…Muslims.
Not that Waylon got me press credentials or anything…and, then, since “exposure” doesn’t exactly pay my bills, it could be argued that I’m not, technically, an employee, either.
But, hey, ya gotta take heroes where ya find ’em…(even when, after driving from Philly to D.C. and back and standing for hours in a massive crush, they’re too tired to write anything more intelligent than this…).
