Rally at the Legislature

I just got back from spending the morning at the Nevada State Legislature, attending the rally for higher education there. Hugest rally Carson City has seen, probably, well over 1,000 people. I have plenty of photos and video from the event to sift through, and I’ll be putting that up over the next day or two, but if you need to catch up here is my tweetstream from this morning, from http://twitter.com/aroundcarson.

I’m 8 blocks away and I can hear the crowd at the #mar21 rally. #nvleg

RT @RalstonFlash Ex-state Archivist Guy Rocha says only protest in history that compares is 2009 Tea Party. At 1K-plus, this is likely bigger. #redbullnottea

@BobzienNevada takes the stage to the biggest applause of the day.

The rally is breaking up now. Everyone is getting lunch, taking letters to the Governor’s office, getting on buses back to Reno.

My batteries are dead, memory card is full, hands are blue. I’m packing it in. Thanks for a fun morning #nvleg #mar21 !!
