Please post your updates from D.C. and from news reports here as well as your photos of the day.

Our Walter Reed salute to the troops last night was very well attended. Upwards of 800 people were there over the three-plus hours of the demonstration.

Photos and video taken by This Ain'tHell taken in daylight before the bulk of the crowd showed can be viewed here.

Update: 9-12 March on DC

Drat!!

My FoxNews feed just went choppy and jerky.. (pun not intentional, but I think I’ll keep it..)

Can anybody point me to a ‘clean’ live-feed for FNC??

TIA

I think the march isn't scheduled to start until 11:30 am.

That's 90 more minutes for even more people to arrive and fill the streets!!

It looks like it is going to reach all the way down the street to the steps of the capitol! It has grown three blocks or more since I started watching it a bit ago.

FNC is covering right now and showing the awesome signs!! I just love seeing all the signs! So much better than the astroturf Rat signs.

Two of my favorites:

"The Constitution is the other document they didn't read!"

"Bankrupt Amercia ---- Yes We Can!"

I have trouble with Fox no matter which service I use. Maybe because it has more viewers. When watching CNN I didnt have any of those problems.

Are there really no porta potties there? Who is responsible for placing porta potties at events like this? Do we need to call the city and demand they get some down there?

Thank you Hildy for the live updates. It looks like the march has begun? (Wasn't it supposed to be delayed to allow the latecomers in?)

Or is that just the crowd swelling?

Yes, Obama is countering the rally with his own in Minnesota at 1 p.m., the same time as the Tea Party rally at the Capitol!

MSNBC will be covering Obama's rally live, of course.

Bulls & Bears is on FOX right now. For a while they had a split screen up showing the march but it’s gone now. Beck will be covering it live from 1 - 3 on FOX but he won’t be there.

I don’t think they are marching yet. I think the crowd is simply growing exponentially.

I can't believe that Obama would pit himself against American citizens like this. He'll do anything to silence us.

When I started checking it about a half hour ago, the crowd ended where the second building on the right begins. Now the crowd extends so far down the street that you can’t tell by that webcam where it ends!! I am so proud of my fellow Americans!! I wish so badly that I could be there.
