Tomorrow Barack Obama will hold a rally in Vernon Park, which is basically the backyard to my office. It's been an exciting day. The Secret Service has the park barricaded off. No one is allowed into the park. Which is kind of funny, because the residents of my building cut through the park rather than walk around the block. I actually saw Mrs. X (name protected) arguing to get into the park because she has a walker and there is no way she going to walk around the block! The Secret Service agent just kind of laughed and let her past the barricade.
Tomorrow the streets around the park will be blocked off. Basically, if I want to go to th rally, I'll have to camp out here overnight.
