Reading about the Together We Thrive © Memorial Democratic Grief Rally, I was reminded of the times Obama came to the university I work for during the campaign and then after for the health care rally. Thousands in t-shirts made for the occasion, signs pre-printed. I had to man a concession stand, which the organizers insisted be open. Gah. It was very ookie when it was all for politics. But this? The branding for a memorial service? T-shirts for a memorial? Concessions?
Because God knows, when I grieve, I grieve better with a Coke and a smile.
