Street Closings 

President Bush is attending a fundraising dinner this evening at the Park Plaza, which is a couple of blocks from school. For security reasons many of the streets in the area have been closed all day today and will be until 9 pm. There's also been an advisory that people should avoid the entire Park Plaza area, even on foot. I'm sure that's doing wonders for the many business in that area. Wonder if he'll consider making some donations from his funds raised to compensate the owners. Guess I won't be walking from Copley/Back Bay today, since there's no way to get from there to school without going by Park Plaza, unless I go on a big detour. I need the library time more than the extended walk.

There was quite a flurry of planning before class last evening, since the parking garage used by many of the evening students will apparently be inaccessible.

Today is also the day that the campus ACLU and Republican Club are co-sponsoring an Open Forum on Same Sex Marriage. I wonder how much the opportunity for presidential protesting and/or viewing will cut into the potential attendance for the forum.
