the DNC and you (or how to avoid a riot)

Hey, all. Just thought I’d give a shout since it’s been a while since I posted here.

I’m going to be covering the DNC for The Metropolitan, and a lot of the protests surrounding it. I’ve got a feeling the DPD won’t be putting up with anything, if this CBS4 report is any indication. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail, but I’ve got a respirator rated for CS gas in case (can’t take photos with tear gas in my lungs, right?).

And Rage is coming to town! All things aside, that should be a good show. So what are you all doing to get ready for the traffic nightmare that will be the convention?

    I’ll be enjoying the DNC from the comfort of my own home :(

    Was hoping to at least get to see the speech, no go.

    Make sure to wear a cup, in case DPD decides to get creative with the billy clubs. If there’s rioting, and/or looting, I need a new DVD player :)
