Initial Reports From St. Louis Tea Party

My wife and daughter went down to the Archgrounds today to participate in the local "Tea Party", along with my wife's twin sister and her two sons. It was cold and dreary, but a lot of people showed up.

Hell, it must have been a success if even the liberal local media mentioned the larger than expected attendees.

Louanne Patterson calls the cure worse than the disease.

   "Our children, my son, my grandson's future -- they're mortgaging it,"  she complained as fellow protestors nodded in agreement.  "They say we're going to get back $400, $800 on our taxes but with the deflation (the stimulus package) is going to cause, that's going to be worth nothing."

   Organizers were stunned by their own success -- they expected 50 to 100 people to come out on a chilly workday but the crowd swelled to 1,000 or more.

Sadly, my family members didn't stay the whole time because the little ones were getting cold and cranky. Instead, they went up the arch.

UPDATE! Here is a video from a local TV Network.
