Letter to the Editor: How Many People?

I attended the ACA rally on Jan. 15 at the Charles Houston Center, which you profiled on the front page of the Jan. 19 Gazette.

There were easily 1,000 people in attendance —10 times the number reported. And while there was indeed disagreement about Sen. Warner’s vote on importing drugs from Canada (I also disagree with his vote, by the way), perhaps 10 people held up signs or protested. The only photos your printed were of four protesters, not the SRO crowd in the bleachers and spilling onto the gym floor.

The real point is that we need affordable health care for all Americans, which was the point of the rally. Your article misrepresented the event in words and pictures.
