ROFLMAO..........

I just told my oldest son who was at a hotel in downtown Chicago last night that the president is right now on a parade float singing "Danka Schoen" like that scene in Ferris Beuhler's Day Off (which is one of our favorite movies). Oldest son got all crazy excited and asked me what channel on TV I was seeing that on. I almost died laughing. Then we went on to put the prez in all kinds of other scenes on Ferris Beuhler's Day Off. It was good for a laugh.

Actually, in reality, so far very few incidences of violence. The police are doing a stellar job of keeping things under control and the protesters are behaving pretty well. Just a couple incidents of someone punching an officer. I hope this peaceful protesting continues to be peaceful. The horrors of the 1968 Democratic Convention keeps coming to mind. That was TERRIBLE.

Interesting enough......some of the infamous "Chicago Seven" went on to be Senators after they decided they might better be able to change things if they did it the 'proper' way.

Actually, I think the NATO weekend in Chicago went as well as could be expected. The police practiced GREAT restraint under some difficult conditions.
