As a fan of Boston history, may I remind you that the American Revolution may have been started by snowballs?

On March 5, 1770, after years of tension over unfair taxes, some colonists playfully lobbed snowballs at a British Sentry on King St (now State St). The Colonial Government & Red Coats were pushed over the edge that night after more than 2 years of civil disobediance. 5 Patriots were shot dead that night in an event dubbed "The Boston Massacre". Soon came the Boston Tea Party in 1773, followed by the battles at Lexington, Concord and Bunker Hill.

The snowball in Manchester was just the beginning our our present-day Ron Paul R3volUTION. Keep it peaceful, but never rest til we take back the GOP and our country!
