On October 30th, 2010, hundreds of thousands of us moderates gathered on the National Mall in Washington, DC to join Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in their Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear. It was phenomenal. No one knows the exact numbers in attendance, but the Washington Metro had its highest - HIGHEST - ridership in a single day EVER. I believe it, too! Mostly, it was just a lot of fun.

Padma's Sane Sign
My Sane Sign (and shout out to our college buddies)
One of the coolest things we saw - just some Muslims offering double dutch.
And a cute man struggling with the jump rope! He was such a great sport.
My favorite picture of the day.
Aunt Crazy's attire
They must be from Austin. :)
No service - BIG surprise.
Crowds all the way up the steps of the Art Museum.
A picture taken by the Park Police - which we'll probably never see.
Celebrating moments of temporary insanity in 2010 - our boy Steven the crazy flight attendant.
Another good sign.
More of the crowd was probably liberal, but honestly most of the signs were really neutral or really funny.
Having a blast!
Visiting the Powderly family on Halloween the next day!

Katie and Chris showing me around their new digs. The house was beautiful!
Kerry in the Playroom before we headed out to lunch. They even have a secret hiding place for presents - such a cool house!
