If you were outside enjoying the fall weather this weekend, and not holed up in your home watching Comedy Central, you might have missed the airing of the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear," hosted by the cable channel's fake newscasters/real pundits Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert (there was, however, plenty of media coverage.) While the actual rally was on the National Mall in D.C., many cities held satellite rallies of their own, including Denver.
In Los Angeles, the satellite event for John Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity took place Saturday at MacArthur Park's Levitt Pavilion. Photo by Ted Soqui for LA Weekly. And yes, it is one of the best signs ever.

Finally, nice move by the Miami New Times, which asked a comedian to cover a rally put on by comedians. No NPR-ish analysis here, just laughs. Miami comic Daniel Reskin brings back this report for the New Times.
