American Icons are a Little Battered

Local Rally to Restore Sanity participants taken by our friend Jackie. Jackie got some great shots of people's calm and reassuring signs, too, but today I thought I'd show you this couple looking like a happy and resilient (bloodied but unbowed) Statue of Liberty and Uncle Sam. Jackie didn't get your names, but if you want to be identified and see this, let us know! Thanks for posing. I think this is the perfect metaphor...Americans have never really been given to calm discourse but they keep coming back. The idea of a demonstration for calm discourse? Priceless.


  1. Thanks for posting this. I missed the Austin rally. It's great to see the participants. Some of the "demonstration signs" I've seen posted by others (the blog in particular) are a hoot too!
