    My family and I, plus the thousands in the stream of people walking with us, are among the uncounted. We were not able to take Metro from RFK Stadium (1 hour wait) where our bus landed at 10:15am, and on our walk down East Capitol Street, we were detoured by the police onto North Carolina and then C and D streets. This took us on a parallel route a few blocks south of the Mall all the way to 14th Street SW!

    On this tour of SE and SW DC (sans the Mall), we only reached the Mall by 2:00PM. This was long after all the aerial photos, and after morning Metro counts were made.
