Re the FLAT TIRE on the bus. I warned in a previous post about the problems of meeting up with the bus for the return, if people do not stay coordinated (from Vietnam days). Those people who took Uber to get into DC: How will they get back? If that bus gets fixed, where will it park that they can find it? To move 100,000 people nationally by bus takes about 1500 buses, and they will have to park far away from the National Mall. Unless that group is well coordinated by cell phone, they will have a helluva story to tell in a few days. By the way, the $112 Uber fee is cheap, given that the driver had a 130 mile round trip into a traffic jam situation
