"Hundreds" protest Obamacare in Washington, D.C.

First, the photo accompanying this story looks like 150 tops--and you can tell the photographer stood where he thought he would get the shot that beefed up the look of the crowd. I wonder what it would have looked like if he had stood in front of the group. Shame on UPI.

Second, we have a population of 350 million. What the hell does it mean that "hundreds" protested?

Third, how hard would it be to hire "hundreds" of protestors? I live in Massachusetts. I remember when the Koch brothers bused in people from out of to attend a Scott Brown rally the year he won a seat in the U.S. Senate. We got a media story saying people had traveled in "from as far away as Washington State" to hear Scott Brown speak. Yeah, right.
