lowered expectations

yesterday: "Organizers expect about 8,000 people to protest excessive government spending tomorrow at the Indiana Statehouse."

this morning: "Organizers say they expect several thousand people to attend this afternoon's event in Indianapolis."

this afternoon: "Police estimated about 2,500 people attended the rally, though organizers claimed their numbers were as large as 9,000."

I'd say closer to 3,000 people. It was impressive, but hard to miss your target when you have mainstream media promotion going almost 24/7 for 8 weeks.

What I find particularly funny is watching FauxNews report on events their guy Glenn Beck created!
