Yawn. There were estimates of 300,000 in total across the entire 
country of nearly 300,000,000 - .1%. As someone said, this is small 
beer in relation to real issues where more than that figure in one 
city would turn out. So as far as e-organising, this wasn't a shining moment.

The question that was asked was if these people were so incensed, 
where were they when Bush started the 'out of control spending'?

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
