Daniel, you may be our eyes and ears at the Reason Rally, our reporter on the scene. I hope the turnout is huge; I also hope you get to participate in discussions with "stars of the show".
If I were there, i would hound David Silverman and pick his brain about firebrand atheism. l would also enjoy sitting with Dilahunte to discuss debate strategy.
With whom would you enjoy a chat?

Joan, I bought my tickets and made hotel reservations for the Reason Rally in June. Then I saw your post ant thought, Oh No! I reserved the wrong month! But, figured out the DAY of reason is not the same as the RALLY for reason. Whew!

Anthropomorphized elephants at the Republican National Convention, wearing '[heart] GUNS' and 'NRA' buttons, holding signs, 'MORE GUNS = LESS GUN VIOLENCE', 'GUN RIGHTS NOW', 'GUNS FOR almost EVERYBODY!' Off to the side, a Black young man notes to the Black young woman with him that the Republicans are in a 'BULLETPROOF ENCLOSURE...'

(A palatial 'RNC Republican Establishment' headquarters building in Washington DC, connected by walkways to its neighbors Super PACs Unlimited and Chamber of Commerce. Flanked by golden elephant statues, two politicians/tycoons are talking on the front steps.) 'Trump's painting us as a bunch of rich, arrogant elitists with nothing but disdain for the little guy...' 'Time to unleash a multi-million dollar ad blitz and scare those bone-headed rubes back into line!'

On the Republican Party in general:
