Offered without comment:
Olga Sanchez, 79, of Tampa, had never been to a rally in Washington. But Sanchez, a retired administrative assistant, watches Beck on television every day. And when she heard him announce plans for the rally, Sanchez called her younger brother, a trumpet player in the National Symphony Orchestra, and said she wanted to come.
“I’m a big fan of Glenn Beck,” said Sanchez, a registered Republican, sitting in her walker in front of the memorial’s first step. “He is opening our eyes, teaching us the history we didn’t learn in school.”
