Kick off the DNC

So far, so okay. I am mostly un-bothered, I even made it into work this morning without incident. Has anyone else noticed the GIANT signs at Downtown Crossing shouting out “ORANGE LINE, INBOUND” (implied !!!)? I guess Boston residents are expected to be confused and disoriented, left to figure it out for ourselves, but that can’t happen to the Delegates. The Delegates! I would shout out “The Delegates are coming!” But I guess they are already here.
The only other thing I have really noticed is a lot of helicopters flying around last night (above my house in JP) – unlike the medical choppers, they just kept coming back around again and again. Whooosh! And then last night I heard some mysterious loud banging (like fireworks, or thunder, but not) and I thought it was gunfire and wanted to hide under my bed. I am still not sure what it was exactly.
Anyway, here’s a DNC guide with some good info. Enjoy the madness!

    Just wait for the commute home. I am dreading it!

    I saw tons of helicopters last night too. Early evening you could see them flying in formation from the south. Its was like the movie red dawn with a little bit of MTV mixed in.
