Much has been written of Glenn Beck’s 8/28 Restoring Honor event on the National Mall in Washington D.C., which attracted approximately 500,000 attendees. Beck himself has deemed those who traveled from all across the country the real stars of the event. The Wall Street Journal’s James Freeman agrees.
One would not be able to find a more polite crowd at a political convention, certainly not at a professional sporting event, probably not even at an opera. In fact, judging by the behavior of the attendees following the event, you’d have a tough time finding churches in which people display more patience as others make their way to the exits.
