well, mag, some of the people on the ferry and bart maybe showed at the
march, but, you can't assume that they all did. when would have been the
heaviest concentration of people? is the 1:45 pm time that the chronicle
used feasably the lowest crowd time? did the chronicle have a interest in
projecting a lower turnout than what the organizers projected? i don't live
there so i do not know if the newspaper has an agenda.

In the chronicle, they did say that only one long photo was taken at
the ferry boats took 7,000 to SF, that was 6,000 more than on a normal
Sunday, and the Bart trains took 185,000 to the 4 major SF stops, thats
record! So, by these two means alone there were at least 190,000 in the
march or at the rally site. This does not include in the public SF
people who took hundreds of private busses with their groups.
