This Convention Vs. The Last

Differences between this political party's convention vs. the last

--This one did have humor in it

--It looks like America. It looks like a rainbow of color, not a box of saltine crackers

--The convention hall is full, not spottily or partially filled

--There are no calls at this one for anyone to be "executed" or "hung" or even arrested

--There ARE calls, however, for, finally and at long last, rebuilding and improving our nation's infrastructure of roads, bridges and highways, etc.

--Signs this week? About love. Literally. "Love trumps hate.'

--Tears. There were already, on the first night, tears of joy, tears of laughter, tears of inspiration

--No hate

--No fear

--At the end of this one, I would nearly bet there will be no musical groups insisting the political party or candidate not play their music

Finally, there's this:

A huge difference between what this Democratic National Convention, this week, in Philadelphia, the "City of Brotherly Love" did vs. the Republicans' convention in Cleveland. One evicted them. This one found them beds and places to go.
