Every picture is up

This blog is an internet scrapbook of my involvement in John Kerry's run at the presidency.

It all started in the first week of March 2004. I heard that Kerry was going to be in Orlando, so I found out where, got my name on the guest list, and showed up to hear him speak.

The number of people at this townhall meeting style rally was unbelievable. There must have been over 2000 people standing in line. I was one of the lucky few that got into the rally.

I saw Kerry about a week later in Ybor.

I went to a Bush Rally towards the end of March. I had intended to raise a ruckus inside the rally, but the 20 people that I had recruited all bailed on me at the last minute.

Then I got involved with LCV.

The rest is history.

Look at that line!

April Fool's Day

On April 1, Eco-Rollins celebrated Fossil Fools Day. It was a showcase of how the US can use alternative types of energy and transportation.

It was also National I'm Embarrassed by my President Day. We handed out brown armbands to any one that was sick and tired of all the bullshit coming out of the White House.

It was a great day.

I've been hooked on direct action ever since.

This early into the campaign (at the March to Save Women's Lives) it was impossible to think that we wouldn't win


What a great picture!
