An Iced Tea Party

This gallery shows images from the 4/15/2009 Tax Day Tea Party at the Federal Building in downdown Salt Lake City. The tea parties are part of a national expression of frustration with uncontrolled Federal Spending.

Salt Lake's Tea Party was hampered by a late Spring snow fall. It was a wet saturating snow, and my camera lens kept fogging up.

The Tribune reports that about 2000 people showed up at the event. The pictures I have don't really show the size of the crowd. It was sufficiently large that I was not able to muscle my way up to take pictures of the speakers. The steps of the Federal Building is not the ideal location for a community event.

Just Paying the Bills

Speaking of tea ... I've found the net to be a great place to find loose leaf tea. With loose leaf tea, you save the bag, save money, save the planet, etc.. Here is my list of Coffee and Tea links.
