DNC: Who Cares?
So, I’m watching the tele the other night and suddenly, my show is interrupted by some old windbag talking about how Kerry is the best thing since sliced bread. “Only in Boston,” I say to myself. “Alrighty then, let’s give ‘Ol Blowhard a chance to say his piece.” For the next 30 minutes, I’m subjected to more liberal rhetoric than even Mr. Dean spouted during the primaries. *sigh* I’ve got nothing against liberals per se, but I get sick of hearing the same old crap: “Bush is making us unsafe” etc. etc.
Since this blog is about Boston (and who am I to get off track?) I must talk about how the DNC has affected me….not one bit. Being on the North Shore gives me a welcome respite from the toil and turmoil of downtown. However, I did make one quick trip down the road and, amazingly enough, no traffic. I guess people took the “Get the Hell outta Dodge!” mandate pretty well. Downtown is ghost-like with emptiness all around. I really pity the North Enders whose businesses are facing a tight crunch (and I love the fact that Menino is giving discounts to the restaurants). When all is said and done, will the DNC in Boston actually be measurable in terms of success or fiscal failure? Time will only tell!
Ta for now. –Dave
