The first of two audio reports recorded on the convention floor.
It took nearly 15 minutes to describe the scene at the state delegation breakfast and the contents of the swag bags. Unfortunately, my iPod only allowed me to transfer eight minutes of that report to my computer. Enjoy.
We arrived at our hotel at about 2:30 this afternoon. We walked around downtown until our room was ready, checking out the Wanamaker Building (now a Macy’s, home of the famous Wanamaker organ) and the north side of city hall, and filling up the last remaining space on our camera’s memory card. At 3:30, our room was finally ready.
We unpacked and chilled out until 7:00, which is when a fleet of buses loaded us up to go to a “Welcome Party” at the Kimmel Center, a relatively new art and music venue on South Broad Street. It was from there that we filed this “live” report.
