Some good 912 Tea Party reports

Shadow's World has the best one I've seen so far, with a "Forrest Gump" shot off towards the monument and over a dozen great photos.

Here is a video that shows the march in time-lapse from the centerline on PA Ave, and also gives a clear shot from the Capitol steps showing crowds pretty much as far as you can see clearly (there was a section of the mid-Mall roped off for another function), and spread out to either side of the reflecting pool.

Transterrestrial Musings has a comment string up with some BoE crowd estimates, and there is a Google Doc to the same effect - ironic, since Google News didn't cover the event. But I guess that's the whole point about waking up from the corporate media dream and finding it was a nightmare. Suffice to say that "tens of thousands" in the AP article is foolishness... estimates range from 240,000 to 450,000 (the latter is from an actual "people counter" whatever that is) for the march, and 350,000 to a cool million on the Mall.
