Sanity Reigns (For a Short Time)

I got a real chuckle out of a whole series of photographs of signs from the Rally to Restore Sanity held yesterday in Washington, D.C. Check them out at the Huffington Post and have a laugh in these difficult times. Laughter is, indeed, the best medicine! An example: An even better one! Enjoy!
