day forty one: september 1, 2009.
i went to another healthcare reform rally tonight. this one was held here in seattle, at the university of washington, and had more civilized attendees... although there were a few crazies that had to be escorted out by police.
i felt this meeting was pretty informative and productive. slides were shown, intelligent questions were asked (from all sides) and intelligently answered by the congressman, and there was a lot of support for healthcare reform in general (also from all sides). people were for the most part well-behaved and respectful, which was a dramatic shift from the everett meeting.
this was at the start of one of what would turn out to be many standing ovations of the evening. xo.
