Five hundred or three thousand? That is the question regarding the head count at last Tuesdays tea party in downtown Peoria.
It appears that our local newspaper estimated the crowd to be over 500, while WEEK reported closer to 3,000. Granted "over 500" could also mean 3,000, but so could the phrase "over 10".
My educated guess - somewhere in the middle - but closer to the higher figure. Maybe all media should consider having a trained in-house "crowd counter". ;)
