Mark Your Calendars: Monday, July 10th

Happened to come across this little FReeper tidbit, courtesy of the Daily Gothamist:
Protest the New York Times Revealing of U.S. Secrets, Monday, July 10, 5 p.m.
We have a sound permit, and we will be across the street from the New York Times. They are at 229 West 43rd Street.
The groups on board so far are Free Republic, Caucus for America, the Congress for Racial Equality, and Protest Warrior, NYC Chapter. We have reached out to several other groups as well, and are waiting to hear back from them.
Some high-visibility media people are interested in speaking at the protest. More information will be coming on this as we gather groups and speakers.
So hold the date! If you have been as sick about the Times's [sic] unconscionable blabbing of our classified information as the rest of those who care about the nation, now is your chance to do something to make your outrage heard.
Aside from pointing out that the supposedly "brilliant" Michelle Malkin (some FReeper had the noive to suggest her IQ was higher than mine! LOL!) making a major grammatical error, Bouldin gives this advice as a counterprotest:
Can we let this pass by without suitably mocking these people? I'm thinking huge posters emblazoned with "Valerie Plame" or just pictures of Turdblossom and Scooter.
Or just big signs featuring Bush's quotes about tracking terrorist finances? Or how about big ol' "Where's Osama?" signs? (you know, patterned along the lines of "Where's Waldo?")

Just throwing that out there, cuz you know, I got a lot of snarky New York readers...give me 500 liberals, and I can decimate that rally. It's a narrow street, and as a lifetime New Yorker, I know some things about that block that FReepers could never possibly know, being that it was the heart of Hell's Kitchen and well, I grew up on the street. Ought to be fun getting some of the old gang back together. I suggest dressing up in Revolutionary War outfits and marching on them.
