Howard Dean Meetup

The last few weeks have been very busy. On top of a pile of freelance work, I accepted a contract job in lower Manhattan last week that has me back in the city every day. Additionally, I’m hard at work writing a business plan for a new company I’m forming, building the company web site and researching the potential revenue streams.

Tomorrow night I’ll swing by the Dean Meetup in Manhattan (the one on Essex Street) to see how organized the grassroots campaign is. I like what Dean is doing and saying but I haven’t declared a favorite candidate yet – I just know I will never support Bush. With over 300 people RSVP’d for that single Manhattan location (there are 3 locations), I wonder if it will resemble a Flash Mob. I wonder if the police will be called to handle crowd control – and if so, what their actions will be. The only thing that comes to mind is the planned war protest back in February that had the police restricting crowd movements (unconstitutionally?). That was political. This Meetup is political. How big does the crowd have to get before the police are called? And if they are called, who calls them? The Bush Meetup people?

If you’ll be there, look for me in my CamWorld polo shirt and say “Hi”.
