DC Expecting 4 Million People In One Weekend
If Louis Farrakhan can bring a million people to the National Mall, how many people do you think are going to show up for Barack Obama? There are already projections as high as 4 million people descending on the National Mall, but no one can figure out where all these people are going to stay.
[I guess for those of you who are utterly confused about what the National Mall, as some of my clueless friends have been, the National Mall is the outdoor area between the U.S. Capitol Building and the Lincoln Memorial. It is not a shopping mall and it's not going to be warm.]
I already have about 8 people confirmed who say they are staying at my place. And each of them is aware that there are only but so many towels at my place for 8 people over an entire weekend. Let alone sleeping space.
