    A good friend of my moms is going to the L.A. one.

    Oddly enough, I'll be nearby that day for that vinyl giveaway at The Record Parlor in Hollywood.

    Anyone marching tomorrow, be safe! Do not lose your group. Have a plan in place if you lose the people in your group. Do not let people push you around.

    Women alone should have sunk Trump.

    I'm willing to bet all those marching voted too. Just maybe not all for Hillary.
  • The lack of tv coverage of this march is astonishing. Internet yes, tv no.

    Democracy Now will probably be the only one that gives a damn like they did for North Dakota. I'm heading there for a record store giveaway sale (Record Parlour) in Hollywood but I may join if I have time back on the subway. Some family friends and college friends are there.

    Sounds like Boston expected 25k marchers and have an estimated 125k currently. Almost 500k in DC. London, Paris, Sydney, etc... Lots of other marches in Chicago, Denver, Seattle, and all over the country. Amazing turnouts. CNN has been showing otetty continous coverage.

    Whats the message tho? Seriously. We were talking about it at dinner with people our age (late 30s and our college daughter and her friend). No one seemed to know what the actual message is. A lot of guessing but nobody googled it so im not sure if its being covered by the news correctly. Is it right and left women together? Just left? Is it anti Trump? I'm curious.

    Empowering women isn't enough for you?

    Is that the purpose? Then great. What im saying is that we were confused if it was for this or that. Its not being covered correctly IMO

    I don't think wearing p hats while trying to deliver a message is going to do anything.
    What do others think of these p hats. I find it very silly and they lose all credibility.
    What if people wore d hats to protest? That would be strange no?
    It's only a matter of time today until this turns into violence and the message gets lost again.
    P hats, ridiculous.
    Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming. AE

    This gives me a lot of hope for all my neighbors in the south.

    Still a great country.

    Im repeating myself, but it would have accomplished much more by turning out in droves to vote.

    That being said... later in the game... impressive.

    We'll see if it's a big event that's just a big event or if it's a spark that ignites a fire.

    I went down to the rally in St. Paul, MN with the wife. A very large crowd. Police estimate was close to 60k in attendance.
