How many marched?
I've been trying to find some crowd shots of the peace rally last weekend. The wrongwingnuts were making light of the turnout and the press, although they turned out to cover it, were playing it cautious with the numbers, so I went to the people for some perspective. I took the two shots here from resistance media who was on the ground. And I took a quick cruise through flickr and found a pretty good gallery of shots.
The street theater and the clever signs get all the attention, but it's clear there were lots of ordinary Americans there. So many that the line stalled. My guess is "tens of thousands" understated the tally. I understand the crowd stretched all the way back to the Memorial. It looks like at least close to a hundred thousand to me.
Of course we'll never know for sure, but it occurred to me that with satellite imagery, the White House probably has a pretty good count.
