The recent “restoring honor” rally held by Glen Beck, Sarah Palin, and apparently Albert Pujols, was staged to appear much larger than it actually was.
I believe the 87K estimate given by CBS. It is the only number which claims to have been assessed scientifically.
The largest area in photographs and filmed images of the event is taken up by the reflecting pool. Beck in fact payed tribute to the reflecting pool in his speech.
Appropriate to the speaker, Beck made his address to a mirror of water.
