  1. #1 Wondering Wednesday. 
    Mr. Snaps survived his hornet/yellow-jacket encounter but it did not improve his mood. He relaunched his attack at dusk but it's too soon to tell how effective this may be. We are having perfect summer weather here and I've eaten about all the summer squash I need to eat for the rest of my life.

    TOTD: As many of you know, CUer Salisar and I are going to attend the DNC to document the general insanity. We are not going to the Walk On Water speech and we can't get into the convention itself but there are still many options open.

    What do you want us to document specifically? We will meet with the Minute Men and the Pro-Life groups, naturally. Salisar wants to find Code Pink and Mother Sheehan. We will have the ability to take both pics and clips. We are certainly going for one day and probably two but we don't want to be there after dark. We will put all our research into a blog or thread here on CU along with all the pics.

    What's your pleasure? :D

    I want to see the yahoos who are moved to the "Free Speech Zone." I'm sure there will be some real winners there.

    Any women who are fainting in anticipation of his holiness, any media who are orgasmic in anticipation of his holiness, that sort of thing.

    I have this image in my head that the crowd will be similar to those attending a Beatles or Jonas Brothers concert. Lots of people carried away on stretchers, oxygen tanks fully utilized....you get the idea. Prove me wrong. :D

    PLEASE take lots of photos of the protest signs!

    Those are always amusing and lend themselves well to photoshop.

    Also you may want to consider wearing soemthing with the flag on it and recording the nice compliments you recieve from the many patriotic liberals that will be there! :D

    Also if you hit "Radio Row" get Hannity's autograph for me wouldja? :)

    It's all going on the list, guy.

    We had contemplated dressing in hippie camo to blend in but we agreed that barking laughter would give us away. We're toying with the 'Clueless Tourist' look right now.

    Let me know when/what you're going to be doing. I intend to seek out some of the most radical factions with some friends and conduct a little man on the street interview with them.

    I hope to shoot some great video. :D

    Monday night will feature a tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy. Denver PD will be setting up DUI checkpoints all along the river.
