I just got home from the sign-making shindig and I'm overwhelmed by the turnout. Thank you so much to everyone who showed up and made (hundreds of) signs. There should be mention of the event tonight and the rally tomorrow on the KATU and KOIN 11 o'clock news broadcasts.
My sense is that support for Sam is really taking hold and we'll have a great turnout at the rally tomorrow. If we can raise awareness that a huge part of the city wants Sam to remain our mayor, I think we have a great chance of making a difference in how this all turns out.
As for me, I'm exhausted. This has easily been one of the craziest days of my life. I'm supposed to get up and talk to Bob Miller at KPAM bright and early in the morning. I grew up listening to Bob Miller on KEX when I was a kid, so that'll be... weird. I hope it doesn't go like the Victoria Taft (had to look up her name!) interview did. Amusing, but probably not productive.
I'm signing off for the day. Here's hoping the rally is amazing and we can affect real change tomorrow. I'm hopeful.
