Saturday Rally=Another Success

If Helen thinks that her "constituents" don't care, she is hugely mistaken. Today's rally was yet another step in taking back Uptown.

Of course, she wasn't around to address what she's been avoiding, and her baseball bat-wielding staff told at least one concerned citizen to leave immediately.

Despite the absurd 'non-response,' we walked home with smiles on our faces knowing that we did the right thing. And we shall continue to do the right thing...

Thanks to all - and stay tuned for the next rally!
