Shiney Happy People Waving Flags

So, today being a Saturday, of course I went in to work. And living in New York City, of course, the subways were on a different weekend schedule. So instead of taking the 4/5 all the way down to Wall St., I had the luxury of getting off at Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall and walking. Little did I know, there was a protest scheduled for today. Apparently some people are up in arms about proposed immigration legislation.

Here is how MSNBC decided to cover the event:

- Thousands of immigrants and their supporters chanted, blew whistles and waved flags from dozens of Latin American countries...

- A festive crowd of more than 10,000 people shouted “We are all Americans,” and carried banners in Spanish and English saying “We are not criminals” and "Immigrant rights are human rights”...

- On Saturday, it was a colorful sea of flags and resembled a street festival with children, parents, and senior citizens.

Basically folks? It's a P. A. R. T. Y.!!!! Grab a Mexican flag and catch some "undocumented" fever!!
