  •  new faces (10+ / 0-)

    We started seeing a number of new faces the past few weeks at the Sing Alongs, and especially yesterday, the turnout was fantastic. Some of them are activists in other areas, but as another singer pointed out, a lot of the people who have been turning out in the last couple of days are the average, not terribly political people who were so outraged in Feb 2011 that they came to the Capitol to make their voices heard. Now that this is going down, and they're seeing elders and veterans hauled off under such circumstances, they're coming back. They're outraged by what they see, and they're telling their friends. I don't know whether this can be sustained, but I was so heartened to see so many people yesterday.
