If Hispanics Hold a Mass Rally Against Gay Marriage . . .

. . . and nobody reports it, did it happen? Does it matter?

The New York Times reports that “Gay Marriage Slow to Draw an Opposition” just three days after a mass rally of (I’m told) 20,000 people — Hispanics lead by Hispanic pastors — protested gay marriage in front of Governor Paterson’s office. I’m looking for a video of the event, which must have been large because it was mentioned (briefly) in the media with no indiciation of the size. I’ll let you know what I find.

And, no, I did not tell the New York Times reporter that NOM’s resources were stretched thin. He’ll probably find out by next week what I meant by what I did say.
