  •  Hm. Buses late. Why does that sound familiar . . . (5+ / 0-)

    Oh, yeah, it's because when I attended the One Nation Working Together rally in Washington, the event was half over when our bus finally reached the designated parking lot, and nearly two-thirds over when I finally reached the Mall. People had already been leaving for the past hour.

    If you want to be able to lay claim to your full turnout, you have to make sure your transportation logistics are flawless. Otherwise, you're never going to have your entire audience together in one place at one time.

    "The great lie of democracy, its essential paradox, is that democracy is the first to be sacrificed when its security is at risk. Every state is totalitarian at heart; there are no ends to the cruelty it will go to to protect itself." -- Ian McDonald
