2008 Obama Rally Set Up
posted by October 30 at 8:56 AMon
OK, things are getting interesting here in Obama’s adopted home town. The outfit that runs Lollapalooza is in charge of the Grant Park rally, and, besides the lucky 70,000 or so who will be inside the fences and through Secret Service checkpoints, the city is bracing for a million people to head downtown. This is making lots of folks very nervous, since the last few big downtown events—Fourth of July fireworks, the Taste of Chicago—had lots of gang violence and several murders.
And no beer. One more reason I’ll be on the outside, phoning it in.
