Wednesday evening

“This is, after all, the boyhood home of the late Charles Schulz, the man who gave life to the hapless cartoon character, Charlie Brown.

“If Charlie Brown were around today – and he does appear in statue form in every corner of the city – then perhaps he would be able to summarize the community’s convention experience in just a single word.

“Arrrrrgh!

“They’ve had an unprecedented hurricane delay, protests and street fights, smashed windows and bashed police cars, attacks on elderly delegates, mass arrests, mixed results at local businesses, a teen pregnancy controversy, a canceled presidential visit, and little actual politicking.”
