What a strange weekend for Independence Day. Saturday was rainy and relatively chilly. Sunday was much warmer and mostly cloudy.

Still, the turnout at the Chicago Re-Tea Party wasn’t too bad with the rain, and Taste of Chicago, and some mis-information that the Tea Party had been canceled (a different one had).

Here’s Christina Tobin of ReTeaParty and FreeandEqual.

And Happy Birthday to Nancy Reagan and George W. Bush!

I almost forgot, when we were leaving the Chicago Childrens’ Museum there was a family arriving. Mom was dressed in a full black burqa. The daughter (about 4-5) was dressed in headscarf, tunic and loose trousers. The father and the boys were also wearing religious garb, tunics and hats.
