Tax Day Tea Parties

Happy April 15th! Instead of me talking today on Leigh! for Lunch (back next week with another great conversation - stay tuned for details), why don't you all take over this week's conversation?

It's been interesting to me to follow the news about the "tea party" protests going on around the country, especially today, tax day. These protests hearken back to the 1773 Boston Tea Party in a public protest against tax-and-spend government.

Here are a couple of links with more information and different viewpoints. 

Tea Parties a Test of Conservative Online Organizing, from the Washington Post

Are any of you out in blogger land involved in this experiment? Will you attend? If so, what does it mean to you? If not, what do you think of it? Is the Boston Tea Party the most effective historical parallel? Why or why not? 

Go! - just keep comments respectful, please.
