Some of the talk on the blogs

Here's what Wendy has to say about "The March".

Angelo Villagomez, pka The Saipan Blogger, posted his First Photos of the Unity March, together with his commentary (of course).  Earlier discussions on his blog include  Upcoming Unity March and Disagreement.  Another Saipan resident blogging under the name lil_hammerhead isn't much impressed.  But, hey, maybe it's the humidity.
