So many speakers! Am I the only one who gets easily bored when more or less the same message is repeated again and again?

Angela Davis is very very intelligent and Michael Moore can be funny (not always), and probably there are a few people worth listening to in the list whom I don't know.

I don't like crowds, I have been bored by sermons since I was a very small child and thus, I rejoice that you (Professor Wolff) suggests that each do what they do best and feel most comfortable about doing to advance political struggle.

I'll stick to debating ideas, online and off. I definitely prefer teach-ins with one or two well-informed lecturers to marches.

I'm with you. I don't plan to listen to any of the speeches. I am going as an act of defiance and in order to prove to myself that I am not all talk. The only thing about the march that matters on Saturday is whether it is bigger than the Inauguration crowd.

There's nothing wrong with being all talk.

You can convince a lot of people with your blog or at a teach-in. Politics is about convincing others, at least in part.
