Any of these crowd scenes look like 10,000+ people to you guys?
I think later updates put the crowd at around 8,000.
Wonder what that comes to per head, out of pocket, for the organizers.
Especially once you take out the security people, the employees, the news crews, curious locals come to see the circus, and the like.
What does it cost to get a single angry retiree onto a bus and on site?
(The retiree isn't a random slam, the demographics of the crowd definitely skew older, whiter.)
Dang, if I were one of the professional organizers setting this up, or the right-wing loonies financing it, I think I'd want my money back.
