Where are the Witnesses?

| Thu Jul. 23, 2009 11:14 AM EDT

Question about Henry Louis Gates' encounter last week with Cambridge's finest: what's up with the witnesses?  The initial reports suggested there were half a dozen onlookers, but I haven't heard anything further about this.  It's hard to believe that no one has managed to round up at least a couple of them since Thursday.  Like, say, the neighbor who took this picture.  Have I just missed something?  Did I read the initial reports incorrectly?  Or what?

Anybody know?
