Reporting from Philadelphia....PCIntern's 16th Street Journal

My office overlooks a thoroughfare which acts as a conduit through which much occurs in the way of demonstrations and transportation, Also quite a number of my patients are involved in the mechanism of the execution of the Convention so if I see or hear anything I'll post it here immediately.

I can't believe that this is my fourth Presidential Convention Cycle here at DU, having joined early in 2004. I look forward to my community's opinions and reportage here.

A feeling of deja vu...

So we had a sniper in Dallas, Texas shooting innocents from his perch, although early news reports suggested multiple gunmen.
Where have I heard this before?

So they took the wounded to Parkland Memorial Hospital via the Stemmons Freeway.
Where have I heard this before?

There is remarkable heroism of law enforcement spreadeagled over threatened women at the risk of their own lives.
Where have I heard this before.

The killer was killed before trial (N.B. I am NOT complaining about this at all: just pointing out the similarities!)
Where have I heard this before?

The country is in shock over the senselessness of it.
Where have I heard this before?

There is endless discussion and the country is split along various lines as to what should be done in the aftermath.
Where have I heard this before?

Many people feel that the country is falling to pieces in front of our eyes after this occurrence.
Where have I heard this before?

A man known as a President of the United States of America smiles at the worst possible time during a solemn occasion and is captured by a photographer/videographer. ( I will say this: at least when Lyndon Johnson smiled at his aide conspiratorially at his swearing in, he didn't break into a strange dance like W. did during the funeral service)
Where have I seen this before?

This is all so troubling...

Left written in blood.
