Welcome to Friday Open Threads, a new series wherein we'll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know.
Guys ... we made it. After four days of speeches, protests, and events all over the city, the Democratic National Convention came to a close last night at the Wells Fargo Center with Hillary Clinton officially accepting the party’s historic nomination to become the first woman president of the U.S.
But political views aside, we want to know: What was the best or worst part about having the DNC in Philly?
For example, was it all the ways that Philadelphia spruced itself up to look good in the national spotlight? I.e. the colorful mural stretching down Broad Street or all of the buildings lit up in red, white, and blue?
Or perhaps it was efforts of the protestors, who made their voices heard throughout the DNC, even convincing the city to take down the Mississippi flag.
But we want to know the hang-ups, too. Was parking a mess in South Philly due to the parking ban or getting around the city just a mess because of SEPTA? Did the crazy weather put a damper on your plans?
Either way, we want to know! Sound off in the comments.
