Last Thursday was the annual celebration of futility known as the National Day of Prayer. There were events in Cleveland from 9:30am until 2:00pm in Public Square downtown. The Plain Dealer sent a reporter and photographer to cover the event. The report did not estimate how many people showed up (usually a sign that few attended) and the photos seem to confirm that.
You will notice that the photographer was careful to crouch and point the camera upwards at people from close up, which is the way that they hide the lack of people in the background. The single panoramic shot showed hardly anyone, but lots of empty chairs
I hope this is a sign that either people do not approve of public religiosity or they think that such an event is a waste of time.
