The morning started out as a
challenge: Rainy, raw cold and windy. By noon the rain
had stopped, but Saturday's welcomed taste of 70s spring
weather was but a brief tease —
attending the rally required bundling up. Those who showed
up must have read American Revolution pamphleteer Thomas Paine's words:
"These are the times that try
men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot
will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his
country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and
thanks of man and woman."
No "summer soldiers" or "sunshine
patriots" these folks!
The only media report found,
and only in The Boston Globe's print edition.

It was good
to see so many old friends and activists all gathered to
show support for the theme of this year's Tea Party rally:
"If you like your freedom you can keep your freedom
— if you fight for it!"
