"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Will this make the networks tonight?

About 25,000 construction workers gathered to show support for U.S. troops in Iraq on Thursday at the site of the fallen World Trade Center, where many of the same working men and women dug through the rubble after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Clad in hard hats, blue jeans and workmen's boots, the ironworkers, carpenters, pipefitters and others filled three lanes of a highway that runs along the site now known as "Ground Zero." They waved flags and chanted "USA, USA, USA."

"We are here today to do one thing, to send a message, the message of what America really thinks. It stands behind our president, George W. Bush," said Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association that represents city police officers, in a speech to the crowd.

It being Reuters they couldn't report a pro_America rally without minimizing it by syaing that the anti-war crowds were much larger. How large will htey be this weekend I wonder? And if they are smaller than 25,000 will Reuters mention that more pro-Americans came out today?

And they mention a Quinnipiac poll. For those not in the know. Quinnipiac polls are not all that accurate or trustworthy.
