    Why only 1 bill? Go for, perhaps, 6.88 Billion, just for the hell of it.

    I understand that's close to the estimate for the entire population of the world.

    Actually, must like the Beck rally, the numbers are varying a fair bit. Similar to the Beck rally, it'll likely take a few days for the various groups to put out their numbers to best figure out a reasonable and realistic number on it.

    Much like I wouldn't immediately trust a WND of Beck's I wouldn't trust a DailyKOS of Stewarts

    The Park District unofficialy set the Restoring Honor Rally attendance at 300,000. They estimated the Restoring Sanity attendance at 200,000. Weird how an organization hired by CNN called Beck's at 87,000 and Stewart's at 215,000. HI-larious.

    As I said before, personally I'd give it a number of days and look at a number of sources...including the two you listed...to get a grasp for what's the likely number, similar to what I did with the Beck Rally.

    If you want to just take the first numbers as gospel, primarily because they server your desires, so be it. I just think its a poor tact to take.

    Whats really weird is how people judge the validity of a movement based on how many people can make a drive or fly to Washington DC from all over the country. Even if we go with 300,000 people than we have .0004% of the population showing up. WOW thats quite a "national turnout" we've all heard about. Heck even the KKK managed to get .0003% of people to turn out for their big march in 1928, but most people never considered it a national movement.

    Point being, just because a bunch of people show up to something doesn't mean its important to people who don't show up.
