This Is What Democracy Looks Like

And it's not like your typical short network news montage headlined "State of Chaos" (NBC Evening News tonight) and giving the pro-union demonstrators and the Tea Party counter-protesters equal time, even though there were 70,000+ of the former and maybe 2,000 of the latter at best. Unbelievably moving to watch tens of thousands of Americans, an endless stream of people completely surrounding the Capitol Square, demonstrating their conviction about fairness, labor rights and democracy. If Scott Walker couldn't hear them, he isn't listening!
