1. BP - I just got a question on my blog about whether the shutdown would affect the March

Since the March will be taking place on the National Mall and the Mall is run by the Park Service will there be any affect on the March.

I have tried looking and see nothing concerning such a happening.

Have you seen or heard anything?


On further investigation I found this under FAQs:
IF THE GOVERNMENT IS SHUT DOWN, IS THE MARCH STILL ON?

They can shut down the government but they can't shut down the #WomensWave! This is a First Amendment protected activity — shutdown or no shutdown, we are marching.

2. I never thought of that...good question.

I guess we are still marching to show that women are strong....unlike a certain POTUS who is afraid of the rain on Memorial Day in France. You can't shut down a wave!
