Out-Sanity


Well, I've put this off long enough.

Despite all that poetry I wrote a few weeks ago about how I couldn't possibly miss Jon Stewart's "Rally To Restore Sanity," it looks like I'm going to have to miss it. Believe me when I tell you that if there were any possible way for me to attend on Saturday, I'd be there; unfortunately, because of both finances and logistics, there's simply no way I can get from Miami to D.C. and back in the time I'd need to travel.

Needless to say, I'm kind of heartbroken, because I still believe that what Stewart's doing is hugely important -- especially right before the mid-term elections. So, for what it's worth, which isn't much, I'll be there in spirit.

Good luck to everyone who's going.

I so disagree. I'm broke. I don't want to spend the time or the money to get there and back, stand and stand and stand in who knows what weather. Ugh, porta-potties. Be thirsty or pay $5 for a bottle of water. Sanity to me is doing a few chores, reading a book on the couch with a beverage and watching bits of the rally online. Good luck to the nuts who are going, but there's nothing sane about it.

A whole crew of us are going, but something to look for, there are satellite rallies going on all over the place (heck, my Mom and Dad are going to the one in Portland) so check out comedycentral.com - they have listings for all of them.

I'll throw in a few smirks and knowing laughs on your behalf!

I was gonna go, being local & everything, but the crowds, etc. BS is more than I can handle on my day off - too much BS in my work a day life.
