Minneapolis?

So it wasn't really til I got to the Minneapolis airport that I realized the truth of my situation. I'm in the belly of the beast, I've flown into the city housing the RNC, in the week the RNC is coming.

You could tell from all the banners and balloons decorating the airport... and the many, many ads for Clean Coal, America's Fuel.

So, with protestors and photographers getting arrested, any ideas what I should do while I am under their radar? (At least, I assume I'm under their radar, given that I didn't even notice myself til I got here... unless they know me better than I know myself.)

(Or unless they're reading this right now...)

Maybe I'll just stick with plan A. State Fair and Ren Fest, then get down to Rochester before this city goes all Republican on me.

hm, i guess it'd be a bad idea for me to ask you to stop by northern sun for me... :)

my suspicion is that you'll encounter more trouble with traffic to/from the state fair than with any of the RNC preparations - just stay out of downtown st. paul proper, okay? (the fact that they're spot-welding manhole covers down to keep people from throwing them at convention-types just disturbs me...)

Riots are ugly things, and many things get thrown during them. They should be disturbed that folks dislike them enough that that might be an issue. We should be disturbed that in our country political discourse hasn't moved past that stage. (or perhaps that it has reverted to that stage)
