Convention lockdown update

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

But plans to lock down a mile-wide radius around the center for security reasons could wreak havoc with busing and activities at nearby schools. Two dozen DPS schools are located within a mile and a half of the Pepsi Center, and the Emily Griffith Opportunity School is within a couple of blocks.
This is certainly good news for anybody that's going to be in Denver next summer.
