Anti-War Protests Continue across America

A massive anti-war protest takes place in New York, and peace marches still are underway on the West Coast. NPR's Robert Smith in New York reports the rally there is the largest in the nation. He says it stretched 30 blocks just south of Times Square into Greenwich Village, 1.5 miles. Police estimate about 100,000 people demonstrated and organizers claim it was more like 250,000. Smith reports it was a peaceful event.
