Peter Dudley's account of the rally for Darfur (Re: "Low Turnout At Darfur Rally" Embassy Aug. 10), an excellent piece of reporting that followed Christina Leadlay's equally perceptive account of the Ride Against Genocide in the previous issue, can be faulted only for the implication of its headline: "Low Turnout at Darfur Rally." The number attending was actually twice what I had predicted. The rally for the Ugandan victims of the vicious Lord's Resistance Army, held in the same spot on the previous Sunday, another hot August day, drew no more than 76 attendees.
