But for Jewish Americans, Farrakhan's history of making remarks seen as anti semitic cannot be separated from the message of Monday's march.

"THE TRAGEDY, THE IRONY IS: THIS DAY OF ATONEMENT AND RECONCILIATION IS BEING FLAWED BECAUSE THE MAN WHO IS ORGANIZING IT, THE PIED PIPER, IT A PIED PIPER OF HATE!" The Million Man March has sparked dissent among many blacks, as well. The N-double-A-C-P is one of several civil rights organizations refusing to support it.
But Farrakhan lashed out at black men who choose not to be part of the WASHINGTON march because they think they're "decent men"...

Park officials say despite the damp, cloudy weather, attendance has been steady for the first day of the fall foliage festival.
This year, though, extreme weather has played a major role in attendance at the park. ((KRISTIN WATERS/VIRGINIA'S EXPLORE PARK: ATTENDANCE HAS PROBABLY BEEN A LITTLE BIT SLOWER THIS YEAR THAN WE WOULD HAVE LIKED IT BUT THE WEATHER HAS REALLY HURT US WITH THE RAIN IN JUNE AND THE EXTREME HEAT IN JULY AND AUGUST.))

If the weather is good for the next two weekends, they say attendance should be about par with last year. ((RUPERT CUTLER: I WAS OVERLY OPTIMISTIC A YEAR AGO. I THOUGHT WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO DOUBLE OUR 1994 ATTENDANCE IN 1995. WE DIDN'T QUITE DO THAT.))
According to Cutler, the park's funding comes mostly from private donations and money from local and state governments.
But he says there are plans to increase attendance at the park by offering indoor events.
The Brugh Tavern restaurant and the Mountain Union Church will offer dining and a place for weddings.
And Cutler says there's more. ((CUTLER: TO BUILD AN EDUCATION CENTER AND A PARK VISITOR ORIENTATION CENTER BETWEEN THE PARKING LOT AND THE BLUE RIDGE SETTLEMENT. WHICH WILL INCLUDE A LARGE ROOFED OVER AREA.))
This will allow the park's interpreters to perform their programs rain or shine.
