Lovely, gentle readers,
I began this blog a year ago, during the Democratic National Convention. In my “What This Blog Is About” post in July, I noted that the city expected to make $160 million from the DNC.

Here is a timely image of late senator Ted Kennedy from the convention (actually, it’s from The Place for Politics that MSNBC set up near the Millennium Bridge at Riverfront Park):
But my favorite image from the convention may just be this one:
Have a good weekend, y’all!
