So did they save the earth on Saturday? Phew! I was worried. So what were the wild incredible attendance numbers this year? Two more than last year?

With all that's going on in our world, economics, jobless numbers, is this where MGG thinks the communitys interest is? They should've had a rally for the redistricting instead of recycling!! More would have attended.
