    Last number I heard was 12k, and I was one of them. Park was packed, and there were DOZENS of buses there. I guess it was on the national and local news, there were reporters from all 3 of the local stations @ the bus pickup @ 5am. Not sure what kind of coverage we got, I came home and went to bed LOL it was a long day.

    The news definatly down played the numbers and gave us very little coverage as expected. Great day with a lot of people of all walks of life.
    This was the largest gathering ever on the capitol ground. As skeet_man said in the neighborhood of 12,000.check out the above link to see some photos.

    I don't believe the elected officials in Albany had/have any idea what hornets nest they riled up. Disappointing to see all the elected officials who didn't bother to show up yesterday. Also very disappointing to see the disheveled/run down state of some/most of the legislators offices. Some of them need to invest in some drywall compound in lights. If they were renting their offices from a landlord, they wouldn't be getting their security deposit back LOL.
