I went and ate at a Lebanese restaurant tonight after work, and noticed that they're already setting up roadblocks and soforth for this rally. I guess they're expecting quite a draw, I dunno. They moved it by a month almost at the last minute, so they probably screwed quite a number of people out of being able to go. That's gonna hurt their revenue, as is the fact that it's going to be nipply cold as opposed to hot as they'd planned.

I had a conversation with this black guy at O'Reillys, he always talks to me when I come in. I never heard a black guy speak against quotas/affirmative action before tonight. I was shocked, frankly. But I gotta say, awesome. Shit like that really makes you think of things differently, and I'll never look at a 1/2" combination wrench the same way (STILL LUSTFULLY THOUGH).

You've never heard the rantings of Alan Keyes, or, come to that, Clarence Thomas? 's OK -- you're not missing much.

Also, rallies have revenue? I've been involved in organizing rallies, and generally a good description of them financially is "giant money hole." Are they charging admission?

Gotta admit, I've never read anything written by a Supreme Court justice.

Biker rallies usually have revenue to varying degrees, because they usually charge admission, and I believe advertising charges/sponsor charges as well. There's no 'cause' supported for this kind of rally except drinking cheap beer the general skankification of women.

The Galveston rally didn't charge admission the last two years and made a killing, due to heavy sponsorship (too heavy), and charging vendors to set up along the streets. This year I think they're claiming free admission but they charge to park or something along those lines. And the heavy charges to vendors and I think they charge admission for the myriad concerts on the grounds. I live around 5 blocks from the area so if they charge, I will simply walk there instead of ride.
