I was actually at the rally. It did last a long time. It started out around noonish I'd say with about 30-35,000 people and steadily grew till maybe around 40-45,000 people. Organizers pegged it at 50,000 after they counted marchers up the street to the White House, but take that for what you want. After returning to original start of the march for dancing and music I'd say there were still about 10, 000 -15,000 there. That's no small feat as it was COLD. It was inspiring and I met a lot of great folks from all walks of life.

The 'organizers' are off by a factor of ten. Which pretty much follows with the 'cause' and frankly your ability to count....45-50000...riiiight.

Time to rebrand 'the cause' 'warming' didn't work....'climate change' sin't exactly rallying the troops....which will it be this time?
