Photo Gallery: Despite Protest, Mayor's Breakfast Draws Hundreds

Ignoring controversy, attendees to the sold-out event enjoyed breakfast, and a speech by Focus on the Family's Rev. H.B. London.

Around 100 protesters gathered outside the to let know they were unhappy with his choice of as speaker for the annual .

The controversy over the mayor's choice didn't spread inside though. More than 300 locals shelled out $17 ($2 of which will be donated to the ) to dine on breakfast and hear Rev. London and other speakers talk about how important family is to the fabric of Arcadia.

We'll have more on the event--including video of the protest as well as Amundson's comments and London's speech--up shortly. Until then, check out the above photo gallery.

Let's see, about 50 people outside protesting and 300 inside (and a waiting list of those who could not be accomodated) enjoying a wonderful breakfast and program. But 51 of the 86 pictures posted are of the protestors. Fair and balanced reporting!?!

More pictures, video, and a full story reporting what happened inside the breakfast and outside at the protest to follow, Mr. Harbicht. We're still working on getting stuff uploaded.

Thanks for commenting, Bob. I'm curious, besides the rather modest difference in the number of pictures taken outside the breakfast versus inside, what you found not to be fair or not to be balanced? By the way, like the article states, there's more to come: Including, for those who missed it, nearly 20 minutes of footage from the speeches that Mayor Amundson and Rev. London gave. Thanks again for commenting! It was good seeing you this morning!
