So did anyone go? The Post has plenty of pics... Including Metro stations in an overcapacity nightmare.

I downloaded it and am an hour in... All the Post quotes about how this was the "Woodstock of this generation" might not be far off.  The Mall is just a mass of humanity (what the Beeb called a "ruly mob" -- taken from some of the signs folks were holding) and it has all the elements of a Woodstock.  Music, and comedy routines, pop culture.  Fast forward to the 21st century and we're not LSD anymore, we're hooked on Mythbusters gags.

Wow... I'll upload this as soon as I clear out Dropbox... But after two and a half hours of nonsense, we wind down and, in the last 15 minutes, Stewart kicks everyone off the stage and... Well, speaks to the nation. More honestly than anyone ever has.

jon stewart has been speaking honestly to the nation for 8 years and no one has listened.  not even that guy who runs newsweek.  or the oscars.  he's really more of a modern day court jester than anything...given freedom to speak his mind but totally unheeded.

I always confuse him in my mind with Keith Olbermann, which is a huge disservice to Jon Stewart.

Do dropbox it, Nacho!  I'd love to watch.

Too much boring crap in between the good bits.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
