I think everyone is in universal agreement that the Indians were royally screwed. First off, when explorers first started trading with Indians, the explorers transmitted diseases that the Indians had no immunity too and therfore disease started to decimate the Indian populations all over the Americas.

How did the rally go?

thanx for the photos.

about 150-200 people, weather was cold and rainy at first, then the sun came out and the march was dry. mostly empty streets though, despite a few uber-thankful tourists wearing turkeys on their heads. several news cameras there- anyone see the event on the evening news?

FYI
Read recently that the crowd was less than one hundred individuals.

Thanks for the pics. Whatever turnout--be it somewhat under 100 as Veteran claims he read or the 150-200 that shake saw (and I'd trust shake more here, being an eyewitness), it's great to have that many people out on a nasty day when many people's families want them at home.

> individuals.

BTW, just saying that you read something, particularly without citing a source, is a pretty weak mode of argument. I can say that I read recently that Tom Menino was going to name Manny Ramirez his new chief of police. Heck, I could indeed have just read it! But if I read it in the Onion, or if my friend wrote it in an e-mail as a joke,or if it was from one of thousands of other unreliable sources, it doesn't mean much.

Matt, Matt, Matt............. Without even realizing it you just showed how much truth and untruth get lost here on this site. I READ less than 100 individuals. I said I READ it. That is what I heard/READ and NOT what I saw. Having quietly attended a few of the things that get posted on here ----- It is in my ESTIMATION/OPINION that the numbers are quite often inflated. Again, that is from past events and the people that post on here. I READ but did not witness! I can make the educated guess that at this particular event - the numbers are indeed inflated!

Adding to that - you unknowingly again brought up a great point. You don't trust me/my information which is based on past events and the inflated numbers posted on here. I have first hand knowledge of those past events and the inflated numbers. That would give me more creditability than most on here. Secondly, when I post an opposing side of a story relating to the military - which I served in the combat arms - you don't believe me. HMMMMMM, It seems that my posts carry much more weight, backed by experience and FIRST HAND KNOWLDGE, then yours where you just jump on the bandwagon.

Food for thought!
