A call for Volunteers. We need your help.

We are compiling a database of the tea parties numbers based upon numbers from the media itself.  We want to show the mainstream media how big the tea party movement is nationwide.  One big demonstration might attract national attention, but 100 small demonstrations might be much more powerful, but overlooked. 

In an effort to do this, we are enlisting your help. 

Here is how you can help. 

1)  We have a list of States below.  Pick 2 states or territories with which you can help with news gathering.
2)  Please insert a comment to claim your states so we do not duplicate work.  We will update the table with your name and/or website. 
3)  Google the top cities in the states that you have (top five should do in most states, maybe more for high population states).
4)  Insert a comment with the link to the news articles, the city, and the amounts.  Note, it is often an estimate or a bit fuzzy.  Just include what the article says, that should be enough. 

We've already gathered up a few volunteers.  In thanks, we'll put your name and/or website on the list once you've claimed your state. 

We need this information completed by Monday at 9:00 PM EST so we can have a story ready by Monday with some nationwide totals. 

Thanks in advance to Wes Messamore of www.humblelibertarian.com and the Left Coast Rebel at www.leftcoastrebel.com for volunteering to help. 

Thanks in advance to everyone else who will help with this endeavor.

    That is the only place that I can find a count for D.C. I was at the second rally in D.C. and I concur with his estimate that there were between 45000 and 50000 in attendance. The article estimated that the first rally had 5000 people.
