It's Here

The invasion of the city has commenced, with the Democratic Convention a scant few days away. Personally, I begin my volunteer stint Monday morning. I'm supposed to show up at the Hynes Convention Center at 9:40 am and I have no idea what I'll be asked to do. I'm not planning to go to any exclusive parties at this point either exactly--I'm considering attending the Pops concert on City Hall Plaza Sunday night with about 20,000 of my closest friends (along with the Yankees game that night, the subway should be packed, great). Other than that, I'll be poking around the convention site some, riding the overloaded T, and seeing a lot of the same television and Internet coverage that's available to everyone. Go check out the "Dem Convention" links on the right panel for more.
