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. On August 24, 5280 magazine claimed the convention netted $266 million in direct and indirect spending. It’s nice to know the predictions were somewhere in the ballpark.

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!

    Yeah, but remember the wall-to-wall police presence? It was just ridiculous how they responded to those “left-wing” protesters. And now we have people hauling guns to political events, and I’ll bet the police presence there isn’t as large.
