Thousands turn out for Keep the Promises rally

Thousands of people braved the cold rain today to rally against the budget cuts outside City Hall. Tomorrow we'll all have pneumonia but today we can relish the thought of parents, students, teachers, and principals united to call for sustained support for the city's schools and their children. I didn't pay much attention to the various firebrand speakers — with their presence and creative signs, members of the crowd made the strongest statements.
