Marching by the Numbers
Just got off the phone with Barbara Espinosa, who sent in tons of great pics from DC earlier today. Hopefully, we'll have some video later, too. As a volunteer, she had "full access" to all parts of the protest. Here are some of the things she saw today, by the numbers.
•70 outdoor port-a-potties.
•90 minute wait to use one.
•The People Meter on Penn Ave had read 450,000 by noon, and 1.5 million two hours later. (That last number still looks awfully high to me.)
•1 DC police officer, who told her, "I've been here 20 years and this is the largest crowd I've ever seen."
