We are about to make history for the second time in a month.  The first time was last Tuesday, with the election of the first African-American president.  The second historic moment is the protests happening all around California and now one coming to a city hall near you at 1:30pm EST this Saturday.  Read about the genesis of the explosive grass-roots movement here.  Many commentators are detecting something big is happening: see examples here, here and here.  

Visibility is what we need and visibility is what we're getting: among others today's op-ed in NYTimes by Savage, special comment by Keith Olbermann, Judge Judy, Joy Behar subbing for Larry King on Friday.

I am still not exactly sure what the end game is here or what can be achieved in the near term, but people getting up to take a stand in massive numbers is an accomplishment enough.  See you at the Mormon Temple tonight.  Whoopi will be there.  Please please please, be civil

PS.  This is my 100th post on EatReadPlay, so here's a little cheer to that!
