A Day Out

Kerry comes to Milwaukee
Nov. 1st, 2004.
I went with a friend and braved the temperature-48F/7C, the wind-17mph and driving rain for four hours to hear what he had to say. It was fantastic. Well, minus the weather. And the fact that our umbrellas were taken away for security reasons. But other than that it was great. Ironically, Bush was at the Cellular down the street at the same time. If it had not been such a crappy day their probably would have been a clash between the two sets of followers as the Bush crowd got out shortly before ours started. I've never seen so much security in Milwaukee ever. Guys with guns on rooftops and all.
The speeches were very impressive and well, now I need to vote!
