Like countless other cities and towns throughout the country, Rome , Georgia (where I live) held it's own tea party this past Wednesday (April, 15th).
I couldn't attend, but I was able to snatch this photo from the Rome-News Tribune website. The photo shows a number of women - dressed as squaw - dumping tea into the Oostanaula river from the Chief John Ross Memorial Bridge.
I find it amusing that this bridge was used as the spot from which to dump the tea. The bridge is relatively new and was the cause of a bit of controversy - many locals saw its construction as a complete waste of tax payer money. Our own little bridge to nowhere.
If it serves no other purpose than a place to hold tax-protest rallies, the bridge may be worthwhile after all.
