The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Here are two shots from today. I got 2100 exposures.

Everyone smiles and waves. Sometimes they stop and talk. When I tell them an 11x14 is $30, they say, "Really! That's not very much."

Almost everyone smiles and waves. One guy yelled "F&%k you, you fat A$$H@@@!"

I'll have him know that, while there's no doubt about the noun in the descriptive phrase, my blubber:mass ratio is quite within the recommended standards.

Just so you know, it only took me 2 hours and 20 minutes to get over 2100 shots. And I probably missed one-third of those who went by the Rimrock Lodge during that time.

My shutter finger got so it was cramping and firing involuntarily.

Maybe the guy meant 'phat'. He was probably jealous, because you are so cool.

So what are your attendance predictions?

I predict that a lot of people will attend some event connected with the Rally, and will spend a shitload of money.
