Sam Adams 12noon Rally Canceled Due To Snow

Went to City Hall this afternoon to cover the support rally. But discovered only corporate media and a solitary, disappointed organizer.
Although the snow was melting by noon as predicted, many people had called and said they weren't coming among which were a couple co-organizers leading many to believe the event canceled. Interestingly though the organizer/s of this rally were not people who normally come out for political events and felt compelled by recent events to give organizing a try. It's too bad the weather foiled the plans but hopefully this does not foil their interest in learning valuable organizing skills. It was really a good try :)
