A few pix of the crowd and some of our neighbors standing in front of the Peace Fountain at the Obama rally in Cleveland yesterday. The PD said 80 large. No way to know, but it felt huge. We couldn't even got to the stage, ending up a block and a half away on the south side of Lakeside, along with a mass of fellow citizens. I don't know about Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman, but this is the America I know as "real". We were all there-- every one of us Americans. Since we couldn't really see much, we all became the event. It was, in the old sense of the word, awesome. Simply thrilling to see all of us there. We will do this tomorrow.
