20 Million People Protest Glenn Beck in E. Lansing, Michigan
Yesterday, over 20 million people gathered in E. Lansing, MI to protest Fox hate monger, Glenn Beck.

Estimate has been revised due to new photographic evidence provided by other people that attended the protest.

According to official estimates, over 20 million people protested Glenn Beck's appearance at the Michigan Chamber of Commerce's Annual Dinner in E. Lansing. The University of I Don't Know used scientific body count technology to come up with their estimate, according to attendees at the event.

23. Hi Jackpine!
I'm quite well. :hi: Stillwater is such a beautiful town. I know all too well what it's like to spend too much money on books. You were dangerously close to our bawdy MN bunch - hopefully you can make it up to our fair Cities one of these days.

27. I heard that all the roads leading into East Lansing were closed because of the traffic
Otherwise, there would have been even more people there.
