Buckle Up, RNC Coming Soon

As a resident of downtown St. Paul I'm curiously looking forward to the traffic restrictions, protesters, Republican politicos, concerts, block parties, PR stunts by hardcore left wing political rockers, and 4am bar times.

The Harriet Island concert is what I'm looking forward to most. Performing will be Billy Bragg, Steve Earle, Lupe Fiasco, Tom Morello as Nightwatchman, Atmosphere, Mos Def and more. I expect to be there most of Labor Day.

And it looks like Denver is getting an early taste of the challenges of hosting a convention in the days of organization by internet where a FOX News team was roughed up a bit.

"Riot 4 Peace"? Seriously?
