    Where do you get that first photo from? Looks like it must have been taken from a helicopter… I haven’t seen it on any of the major media sites.

    • Interesting. Appears the crowd count is as controversial as the protest itself. Saw a map of the Capitol Building public area during the Inauguration, along with a layout of the Mall area, showing that combined, the numbers of people those areas can accommodate total about 1.2 M, and given certain estimates and photo coverage, it appears this demonstration was comparable, so how can they say it amounted to only 75,000. The NRO reporter said the range was 350,000 to 1.5 M. I suppose we could split the difference, but what does it matter?
