Today is day one of the 2008 Republican National Convention in downtown St Paul. There have been a few protests, a few arrests, a few police raids, and many more to come in the next four days. The city of St Paul braces for who know what. I just hope these goof balls from out of town that are hell bent on destruction of the RNC don't embarrass the state of Minnesota. I did find this unexpected site while traveling along Interstate Highway 94 on the East Side Neighborhood between Highway 61 and the 3rd street exit. I drove by it three times to capture one decent enough photo to post today. I'm sure many of the delegates will see this as a welcome side as the make their approach into downtown St Paul.
