  •  I could not get over there today. (4.00)
    Looked in the P.I. and SeaTimes and didn't see anything.  How was the turnout?

      •  Estimating the size of Westlake Center (none)
        and judging dimensions from the length of accordian busses in satelite images of the square--I would conservatively estimate at least 2500 people were there--(The Times article this morning said something closer to 1000, but that was clearly a low-ball estimate).  

        My estimate was based on at least 9 square feet per person--which is clearly more than most people in the crowd had there.

        But if you had asked me before I had a chance to see a map of the area, I would have guessed somewhere around 5-10K.  I guess just being there makes the numbers seem higher.

        I carried water for the elephant; Back and forth to the well I went; My arms got sore and my back got bent; But I couldn't fill up that elephant
