Democratic Convention - Day 2

What a day.  I almost missed every planned event. The LGBT caucus did not have any standing room. I was shocked to see so many LGBT delegates. 

Chasing a story I missed a free meal at Ruth Chris's. I was finally able to eat after 8pm.  The yogurt and granola were working overtime. 

As I stood in the long line for substance, I prayed that I would not pass out. Finally I ordered a huge burger.  I finished the burger in under two minutes.  Note to self never miss lunch.

As I was leaving the convention,  I noticed the contrast of DNC delegates to those attending the RNC. Every group berated at the RNC had more than a token representation at the convention. 

After the convention, I attended an after party held by Stonewall Democrats.   The older people understood the meaning of party. The younger crowd were too busy on phones.  Do we not dance anymore?

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.
