And ye shall know them by their Dockers slacks and fleece pullovers.

I'm at the Johnson County Democratic Convention, waiting, as one duffer even older than I, for the 'action' to begin. Glad there's free Wi Fi, even more glad I brought 2 books.

It's no surprise that the people who actually bother to show up at an event like this trend older than the general population. After all I waited until I was 50 to show up. But amongst this group of earnest elderly is the only time I can say I was glad to see a couple of skinny emo boys. I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover.

There's one thing in common between musicians and people who participate in party politics -- they're willing to spend long hours doing something boring (practice vs party meetings) for the promise of an eventual payoff. Which dovetails with my observation that a Campaign Rally is like a rock show, only no one rocks.
