Hi everybody, I would like to expand on JP's remarks. Yes, all those weird, unfortunate things happened but I wouldn't go so far as to say it was completely worthless. It was an amazing coming together of many, many different people and types of people (although the trolls on Huffpo are bound and determined to believe the crowd was essentially 99.99% white). We all got along great, no disagreements or problems, which is hard to achieve with a crowd that size. Anyone who wanted to could put their signature down at the bottom of a very large print of the Constitution. So in our own very little way we had some sort of impact and I think the majority of those who attended will be happy they did, if only to embrace our sameness, instead of vilifying our differences.
Not to mention, stories that involve mishaps of a non-fatal sort are by definition much more entertaining than "Everything worked perfectly, nothing went wrong, a good time was had by all".
No drama. I can't even say, unlike a previous experience, that we nearly got blown off the Delaware Memorial Bridge. With better scheduling all around (Metro people please take note) I would definitely do it again.
