WASHINGTON (AP) — Crowds trying to get to the National Mall for a rally organized by Fox News commentator Glenn Beck faced long lines trying to use the Washington subway system.

Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said Saturday that there was crowding at least a dozen stations, in particular stations coming from the suburbs into the city. She said that in the past organizers of large rallies have bought distributed rail passes in advance, but that apparently was not common this time.
