We Are The Revolution, Honey, Coming To Take You Home

It was one of those things that made me feel there is hope for humanity after all.

Okay, remember how Fred Phelps and the assholes from the Westboro Baptist Church were going to picket at the funeral of Christina-Taylor Green, the 9 year old girl killed in the shooting rampage in Arizona?

1)  They never showed up.  Pussies.

2)  Maybe they didn't show up because of some other people who decided to attend the public gathering. 

More than 1,000 of them.

They responded to the Internet call to arms.  Holy crap, did they respond.

Among them were Dennis Bennet, who showed up with 55 brothers from the Phoenix Motorcycle Riders Group.  "We just want to show our support," Bennett said. "And if dummies show up, we want to stand in front of them."

It's an important lesson that jaded cynics like me need to keep in mind -- there ARE good people out there.  Keep the faith.
