    I feel certain this analysis is essentially correct but I am willing to concede 25,000.  I was there.  It was below freezing with a persistent 20 knot wind. Damn cold for anyone. The speeches went on an on. Because I was with the press tent I had my car parked at the primary access point and was sitting in it to stay warm.  An hour before the march lots of people started leaving.  

    The people there were a very committed bunch and their spirits were high.  There was also an awareness that this is jus one of a web of major issues that we must confront.  The people at this event will be among those who change the world, they are committed.
