That’s just great

So our dear ruler, his presidentness, is coming to town in a little while. This means rolling road closures and shutting down half of downtown for a few hours.  This place is crawling with police and media (naturally) so getting around is going to be more of a pain in the ass.  Not sure what he’s here to talk about, but I’m sure I’ll hear about it on the news.  Just made an observation.  Looks like supporters are hanging out in front of the convention center where the president is speaking and protesters are gathering across the street.  May be natural or forced segregation, just find it interesting.

A couple of updates:
Looks like the protesters are allowed on the same side of the street as the cool people.
Heard on the news this speech is basically a fund raiser.  The fee is $250 per person.  Like him or not, why should I pay to hear any president speak. Later it’s off to another fund raiser across town where the per person probably costs more than my car.
