packed house at the central library!

sunday was a busy day, with most events happening in seattle around the same time. i had to leave one event early to arrive late to the post-film discussion of the movie "unconstitutional" at the seattle central library.

i was thrilled to see a packed crowd--around 100!--eagerly raising their hands for the opportunity to learn from an aclu representative. the questions were mostly about legal concerns and citizen's rights.

after the discussion, i had an interesting chat with a friend's mom who was visiting from great britain. she admitted the film and subsequent discussion revealed a side of americans not often exposed in her home country's media.

from the number of people in attendance and the enthusiasm they expressed by queuing up to speak with the aclu rep, i'd say it was a grand success!

I would add to the comment of the visitor from Great Britain, that the side of our America exposed in the documentary "Unconstitutional" is a side not often seen in the media of our own country.
