Conventions

with 5 comments

The other day I read that it was a hundred years since the Democratic Party’s convention was in Denver. Which got me wondering where it had been held in other years. Then I checked where the Republicans had held their shindigs. Seems like Chicago is a popular town. Oh, I dunno why I waste time doing this stuff; it just gets in my head, then I have to do it.

Blue is Democratic, rusty orange for the other lot. Maybe I should’ve added labels for cities, but, I’m just gonna assume that you know which cities are where.

    “Together we will rise to ever higher and higher platitudes.”

    Two reasons it’s their kind of town.

  5. Nice observations, Walt. There’s no riot like a police riot… at least in Chi town.
