Remove or restructure "Events" section[edit]

The section seems a bit useless. Perhaps the information should be incorporated elsewhere, or maybe the list structure isn't the best way to present the information. What I mean is, there haven't been many specific events/rally's that are well know for taking place on the mall, however the association between the mall and national rallies is well remembered, perhaps it is more useful to demonstrate this fact rather than attempt to list all the important events (of which perhaps only MLK's speech can actually be considered noteworthy).

Drained?[edit]

When I was in DC in the Sprint of 2003, the pool was drained for repairs of leaks. Does anyone know if it is still drained? Jevin 21:07, 2004 Oct 9 (UTC)

No, it's full now. →Raul654 23:27, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)

Lawn?[edit]

on google earth and google maps there is no lake but what appears to be a lawn. has it recently been converted to a lawn or lake or what? basically does anyone know the history?

I'm not sure where you're looking but there has been for a while and still is a pool inbetween the Lincoln and Washington Monuments --Niro5 19:04, 14 July 2006 (UTC)Hi I am Matthew B.

This page should be retitled Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, as that is the pool's proper name. It is also the most recognized reflecting pool in Washington and should have its own page.Chancychipman (talk) 20:31, 21 January 2008 (UTC)Chancy

In Media and Pop Culture[edit]

Would anyone object to having a section added indicating where this monument appeared in television, cinema, the media and fiction?24.188.207.20 (talk) 22:29, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Restoring Honor Rally Attendance[edit]

I deleted the following quotation from the body of the article but would not challenge its poster's desire to have the text here.Czrisher (talk) 19:14, 30 August 2010 (UTC):

If you take the length of the reflecting pool of 2029 feet, and you figure each individual person if standing side by side, with liitle to no space between them you would get approximately 1000 people (2 ft per person) in a single row on one side of the reflecting pool. Knowing that the pools width is 167 ft we can deduce that the area on each side of the pool is considerably smaller then the width of the pool. Using these powers of deduction we can make a decent estimation of crowd size. The reflecting pool side areas are narrow so guessing that there could be a row of 20 people wide on each side of the reflecting pool you can say that EAC SIDE of the reflecting pool holds about 40,000 people jammed packed. That asusmes there is little to no space between individuals.
