We sat on Route 81N from 9:30 pm to 2 am, backed up after a traffic accident.  You haven't lived until you have been on a charter bus, backing up on a major interstate, squeezed between tracter trailers on one side, and a ditch on the other.  Mr. WH used to drive big rigs, and I have a lot of respect for their driving skills, but still....  Enough about me!  DC rally photos ahead!

Boarding in the dark.

NY has a message for Governor Cuomo!

I also totalled my junker driving home from the bus drop off.  No worries! Two union employees in one household means not living paycheck to paycheck.  We really need to work on pumping up unions!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
