Update: "Wayward Bill" of Deadheads United saw them:
During the past 3 hours very large troop helicopters have been practicing maneuvers for riot control for the upcoming Democratic Convention. These suckers are huge. I am not up on my Army nomenclature these days so I can't give them a name. They are flying over right now as I type. It's phun living at the edge of downtown and being only 3/4 of a mile from the PepsiRead post for full loopy flavor.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying

"Don't ask Hickenlooper to help you
Cause he'll turn the other ear
Won't you please come to Denver
Or else join the other side
We can change the world —
Re-arrange the world
It's dying — if you believe in justice
It's dying — and if you believe in freedom
It's dying — let a man live his own life
It's dying — rules and regulations, who needs them
Open up the door"
(Chicago, graham nash/annotated for the Denver National Convention 2008)
Yes dear friends to paraphrase and annotate another older song about Chicago,
"It going to be a [hot] time in the old town this August."
I am writing this as a forewarning to all those who want to ReCreate 68 in a negative way!
Bring Peace, Love, Good Vibes To The Democratic National Convention.
Honey catches more ants than vinegar!
Update II: Citizens! Do not be alarmed! (Favorite comment, from "The Punnisher": "FOUR DEAD IN OHIO....says it all." Well, maybe not
all . . . )
Update III: Totally unrelated: "Denver stocks up on pepper weapons."
