commented on Photos: Bernie Sanders Takes Seattle Out to the Ball Game
This is the first place on the interwebs I have seen someone put a figure on the size of the crowd last night. One thing not mentioned anywhere: the number of people turned away from the event -- security was MUCH tighter than the average airport. Anyone with a bag, purse or backpack larger than about 4" square was rejected. This disproportionally affected women (purses!) and I saw many families with children turn back as the woman wasn't about to throw her purse in the trash (although a few did). Combine this with the mile-long
line (they didn't open a second door until approximately 5:45) and they should be grateful for those who did attend. Go Bernie!
