Current Events

DNC Day Three (Continued)

Giant, fifty-one foot inflatable marijuana joint, a fart-in protest, how we were interviewed by independent media, a brief run-in with Greg Palast, accounts from delegates of what happened within the convention walls, an epic rant from the Sane Progressive, the Death of Democracy candlelight vigil (rescheduled from Day One), and the not-yet-released documentary film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.


One very robust sing along with Bohemian Rhapsody, two tanks of gas, three angry Bernie Sanders’ supporters, four U-turns, and over a thousand miles — my friends Connie and Rachel and I finally arrived in Philadelphia. I’m writing this in a two-star Days Inn hotel, which is actually clean and decent so far. It was the only room available that wasn’t ridiculously overpriced but still within a reasonable distance from the Democratic National Convention.
