You know the irony of all this is that there are more postings on this event than people who showed up for it. Another sign of the Apocalypse.

I agree with EJM. How is it that a dozen protesters can warrant this much press attention? Seems a bit overblown... especially considering how much this issue has already been bantered about and discussed almost to the point of overkill.
I seriously doubt there has been even one person, on either side of the issue, change their stance because of either the protest, the article, or the comments. Time to move on...

"How is it that a dozen protesters can warrant this much press attention?"

Press attention goes to whatever a news outlet thinks will make a good story and that's not necessarily what's newsworthy. A handful of angry people marching and carrying signs with inflammatory slogans and images makes better copy than an audience sitting politely in a statehouse balcony listening to a legislative hearing.
