"Momentum is a bitch. It's probably the hardest thing to maintain in any activist movement. Join The Impact, the new web-based group that organized the remarkable nationwide anti-Prop 8 rallies on November 15th, is learning this hard truth pretty quickly. Their three actions since then--a postcard campaign, "Day Without A Gay", and Saturday night's nationwide "Light Up The Night" demos--failed to live up to this group's early promise, or its justifiably glowing press coverage (see their New York Times profile)."
