Over 100 brave rain to protest outside Sinclair's Columbus affiliates
From the Dispatch:
About 100 backers of Sen. John Kerry protested in the rain last night against a local TV station’s plan to air an unflattering film about the presidential candidate.
Holding handmade signs and umbrellas, they stood in front of WSYX-TV (Channel 6), 1261 Dublin Rd., during rush hour.
Amid a steady downpour as temperatures approached the mid-40s, the group complained about Stolen Honor: The Wounds That Never Heal.

"Just think how many people we would have gotten if the weather was good," said John Burns, a Veterans for Kerry volunteer from Seattle.
