The Democrates are coming to town....

The Democratic National Convention is being held at the Staples Convention
Center in Los Angeles next week (Aug 14-17).  As usual, there will be
various street closings, demostrations, and so forth.  Currently it appears
1919 W 7TH Street is the principle organizing point for marches and protests.

The One Wilshire Building, one of the principle "carrier hotels," is a few
blocks away from the festivities.  Although the main meet-me room building
is outside the restricted area, there are a number of carrier facilities in
the surrounding  blocks.  There has already been at least one unscheduled
street closing while the police investigated a suspicious package in
the area.

For real-time information on the traffic situtation in the surrounding
area see
