    RNC In NYC 

    Conventioneering Fingerlicans and protesting Tastycrats are out in full force, but so many New Yorkers got out of the city that the streets are almost empty (by New York standards of course). In honor of those who left the city the Empire State Building was yellow yesterday (despite the fact that the official website says that it’s in honor of US Open).

    I’ve seen a lot of regular police officers and semi-military ones out before, but I haven’t seen such a concentration of police brass performing regular cop duties. There was a police lieutenant guarding the subway turnstiles, another lieutenant directing traffic and a captain guarding what looked like a normal transit bus with police “Christmas tree” on the roof filled with cages and lockers of assault rifles (and probably other stuff). They even posted a sergeant and a couple of cops to guard Victoria’s Secret (probably from Republicans who might want to find out what it is).

    I took this picture because my wife was egging me on. Now she wants credit.

    There was this cool bigbrothermobile driving around. Hey, it doesn’t matter if you are in a velo-rickshaw. You gotta get your 2 minutes of hate on.

    Reading Signs 

    Joel sez: users don’t read anything. That’s true. But sometimes they’ll still get some use of the instructions in one way or another.

    I wonder what the code under the letters “WET” refers to….. Oooh, I know! It’s one of those “markers and signs [that] are part of a civil disturbance control plan that will implement Emergency Executive Orders #11002 and #11004 to process, control and relocate “dissenters” to detention camps, and prisons during a National Emergency.
