Cathie - using your best analytical skills, photo-numerical estimation, anecdotes and head counts you did yourself, how many people demo'ed nationwide yesterday?

My count, using imprecise methods, is about 12,000.

Maybe 15,000.

Unfortunately, this is tepid and the outrage will fade from people's awareness quickly. It will take a bigger issue to actually get "people" out into the streets.

By "people" I mean tens of thousands or a hundred thousand or more, with several arrests.

Back to the drawing board or it's 4 more years.
