There’s a rally going on

Downtown resembles a stroller fashion show this morning. Groups of parents, teachers, and other concerned citizens were meeting in clusters all over downtown before proceeding to the Capitol.

Those here for the rally seemed to outnumber those headed for the farmers’ market and SxSWers generally. It’s a beautiful day for marching. People were handing out leaflets for Save Texas Schools.

My camera wasn’t working, so I caught just one picture, of a group from Cedar Creek meeting at the library before heading to Congress and the Capitol. One of the handmade signs displayed by that group says, “Those who can, teach; those who can’t, legislate.”

Enterprises that silkscreen tee-shirts have been doing a good business, and I saw some handsome S.O.S. designs from all over Texas, not just from around Austin.
