Rally at 5

The Flamingo turned a fantastic color during a rally Wednesday.

It was great weather for a protest, mild and clear.  The rally began in the afternoon, my old office window rattling from all the noise.  It was still going on as commuters began pouring into the streets at 5.

The rally was in support of charter schools, but most passersby really had no idea, or took it for just another teachers’ rally.  There are so many protests in the Loop, and lots of agitation about the schools.
