Rally To Restore Sanity

The Seattle version of comedian John Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity is happening this Saturday. It's a parody of political protest, but the organizers say they're sending a serious message too: that sane, calm discussion is better than shrill, angry shouting. We'll check in with organizers and talk to a guest who says hostility, bias, and intemperateness also have a place in democracy. What do you think? Are you planning to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity?


Jim Baum is the coordinator of the Seattle Rally to Restore Sanity, which will be held tomorrow (Saturday) at 9:30 a.m. in Westlake Park.

Scott McLemee is a critic and essayist. He's a contributor to the news site Inside Higher Ed and he writes the Quick Study column for the Arts Journal website.
