A rally last Saturday afternoon on Main Street about half a mile south of the Connecticut capital's downtown. Local landmarks like the United Technologies Corporation "Gold Building," the Old State House, and the Traveler's Insurance Company Tower can be seen upper right. In the crop (click image for larger view) you can read the extensive list of things the group was protesting. As with other "Tea Party" events I've observed around the state, about one car in five that passed the demonstrators and their signs responded positively, blowing the horn, waving, or giving a thumbs-up.
