More photos at Instapundit, who shares an e-mail from a protester in D.C.: “On crowd size, Randy emails: “They announced 25K about 15 minutes ago. I cannot see side to side but it goes solidly from steps to pond and then around to the other side of the water. Before things got started it was full between the 2 walk ways leading up to Capital. Is now wider than that but I cannot see the edges from where I am.”

Nancy Pelosi’s Slaughter House convenes at 9am. The chaplain opened with a prayer that had this line: “Shield us with your Holy Spirit, Lord…and drive away all that is evil.”

Amen to that.

On the West Lawn of the Capitol, Tea Party protesters and health care takeover opponents meet at high noon to raise their voices against the rotten policy and rotten process that has led us to this foul moment.

Americans will also gather at demonstrations nationwide to show their disgust and disapproval of the corruption, coercion, and Constitution-butchering.

I’ll post as many reader notices, photos, etc. from across the country as I can. Kicking off the rundown:

Update: Capitol Hill protests stretched into the evening. Many Tea Party activists will be back again Sunday to keep up the no-mentum.

Reader Joey who was in attendance in DC e-mails:

“After the day long rally, into the night there were speakers. Toward the end, we were asked to please email, and phone everyone and request they return tomorrow. We were told that the congressman would be praying inside the capital at 11 am and that it would be wonderful if we were outside praying. Just passing this along.”
