    I can't be there July 4th - I'll be in Canada.

    I attended a few 1,000,000+ marches during the Vietnam era, including one in DC on my birthday.
    A crowd that size cannot be ignored, especially in DC, which is a relatively small city. We WOULD be on the news.

    I don't think there's enough depth of feeling yet to bring out a crowd that size, although there's certainly a much broader swath of the country that's dissatisfied. But they (or their kids) aren't being drafted yet, nor are they being asked for much else in the way of sacrifice, so the war's still just a TV show, albeit one they're having less and less fun watching.

    As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it? - William Marcy Tweed
