We Came, We Rallied, But What Did The Media Say?

April 16, 2009

First of all thank you to everyone.  This was your rally!  We were there, we know how great the turnout was.  We know how respectful everyone was and how much fun we had!

But what did the media have to say about our rally?  Here is a round-up of the media coverage after the rally.  Please feel free to comment and if you see something written about the event, post the link in the comment area so we can see what media outlets reported our event accurately and which ones did not!
