I’m in Kansas City at the moment, and will be attending the speech tomorrow (Saturday) at Liberty Memorial. I saw John Kerry speak in front of Union Station in 2004, but I was so far back that a group of Republicans with air horns made it very difficult to hear. I’m going to arrive early to try to get in with the more enthusiastic crowd. I presume I’m going to have to go through security, and the web site says only:
For security reasons do not bring bags or umbrellas. Please limit personal items. No signs or banners allowed.
I’m taking the bus down there, so I don’t have the option of taking anything “back to my car”. I need a bottle of water and would like to take a small video camera. Am I going to be OK?
