Here are some scenes...

...and chants from yesterday's "Not My President's Day" rally on Wacker Drive, directly across the Chicago River from Trump Tower.

The newspapers said there were about a thousand people in attendance. Everyone was well-behaved and the cops were friendly. Kind of a snore, actually. Some of the signs were pretty clever, though; I wish I had focused more on them. I also wish I had brought a sign of my own, which would have read:


"Hey hey! Ho ho! Donald Trump has got to go!"

"Hands too small! Can’t build a wall!"

"No hate, no fear! Immigrants are welcome here!"

"Show me what democracy looks like! This is what democracy looks like!"

"We need a leader, not a creepy Tweeter!"

I got down to the rally a little after noon, stayed for about an hour, and then ducked into the Billy Goat Tavern on Lower Michigan for a double cheeseburger. It was a beautiful day!
