Instapundit is Tea Party News Central today.  Scroll down for lots of posts and pictures.  He also has advice for organizers:

SOME ADVICE FOR FUTURE TEA PARTY ORGANIZERS: Be sure to have a signup sheet where people can put their emails and other contact information for future events.

Also, consider printing up some postcards addressed to your local Representative and Senators. They should say that they’re from the Tea Party protest, and carry a message of fiscal discipline. Get people to sign them, and solicit donations for postage, then mail them. Local mail from real constituents makes an impression.

Also, encourage them to contact local media after the event, and either compliment them on their coverage, or politely criticize it, as appropriate.
