Political fun night

Last night we went to see Mr. Smith Goes to Washington in Grant Park. Jimmy Stewart is great, as usual.

Before the movie started, though, I got to hear Barack Obama give the keynote at the Democratic National Convention. Wow. Obama’s brilliant; I don’t think I’ve felt so compelled by a candidate at any level. Don’t take my word for it, though: judge for yourself (link from C-SPAN).

Oh, and Erica and I took a walk around and under “Cloud Gate.” Contrary to previous cynicism, this piece is incredible, beautiful, a perfect fit for the new park. Sometime during daylight, I’ll head downtown and take some pictures and post them for your amusement.
