205 Photos of Tea Party Express in Rockford IL on April 6
The weather cooperated nicely. Heavy storms in the morning broke by 10:00 a.m., giving Tea Partiers plenty of time to drive into Rockford, Illinois for the Tea Party Express. Here are some of my photos, in a slideshow below. It was a great crowd. (Photo, L-R: John Ruberry, Andrea Shea King, Tom Mannis, by W.T. Huston)
A Rockford police officer told me, "We're here to protect you guys. I wish all the crowds were this nice." Yep, no hate speech, no flag burning, and no litter. Everybody was welcome.
