THE GATHERING

Yesterday the news media devoted the lion's share of their resources to covering the big news about the Democratic primaries. It was almost as an afterthought that any coverage was given to other stories. One that deserved more attention than it got was a remarkable gathering in Washington: the "Green Our Vaccines" rally.

My friend, Ginger, was there, and has posted some remarkable pictures of some of the participants. Check it out.

Also newly posted is the video below from the rally, which comes from an unusual source: Autism Speaks (or someone associated with them). As did not endorse the rally, nor does it seem to want anything to do with the message that was being proclaimed by Jenny, Jim, and a few thousand of their friends. But they seem willing to at least acknowledge us. Although this video lacks the intimacy of Ginger's pictures, it gives a good sense of what the rally was all about, and for that I would give credit where it is due.



UPDATE:
Here's another video from the rally,this one from Lighthouse Studios, which has been a source of "good stuff" telling our side of the story. This one shows a bit more of Jim Carrey's address to the crowd.

Thanks for stopping by, and also for all you do, Christine. All of the Lighthouse videos can be found here. And I would add that Christine's blog has a nice post about the rally, along with a few great pics.
