Excellent foreground. That old guy with the hat in the background is grimacing at the cars on Broadway that wouldn't honk. Or he's just constipated.

  1. Actually, it's not a bad picture of the guy in the background. What I don't like in that shot was all the empty space between the people. If folks can't get themselves out to a rally, they're not feeling the message. I certainly wasn't.

    "Save Our City" — someone said that sounded like a prayer. How about: "If corporations are people, put 'm in jail. If electeds are accomplices, they go to."

    And, as cute as little children are, I'm always against using them as tools. Giving a kid some words to speak at a political microphone is no different than manning a full-size puppet. At least what the ventriloquist does is art.
