Uh oh

A "pro-Obama budget" event is slated for 2pm this afternoon here in Uptown:

NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana ACORN and SEIU Local 21 plan to gather in New Orleans to kickoff a national campaign in support of President Barack Obama's budget, which ACORN calls "a transformational blueprint for rebuilding and renewing America."

The event will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at New Orleans Adolescent Hospital, 210 State St.

If I wasn't locked into an obligation that runs through that time, I might actually contemplate protesting outside the event to counter speech with speech.
