Good crowd a half hour before kickoff!
Update: Cool! I blogged from my cell phone! I also sent the picture above to twitter which is why there are hashtags in the title of this post. I posted a picture of Dana Loesch and Jim Hoft hard at work (follow the link after that link).
Shortly after the picture above was taken, we moved from this cramped, inadequately air conditioned room to the cafeteria hall downstairs. The crowd was huge—you'll see that in the video when I pan. It was easily hundreds. I was told by one of the organizers that a police officer had estimated the crowd at a thousand.
