(Disclaimer: This post mentions politics, but it's not political.)
As you probably know, Pennsylvania hosts its primary Tuesday in the hotly contested race for the Democratic nomination. It's been fun to see the city so engaged--Mayor Nutter was on the Colbert Report! Greg and I went to see Obama speak last night, and it was quite a feeling to be sandwiched in between Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center, surrounded by 35,000 people who are excited and hopeful about the future. I should probably say that we went to hear Obama speak, because we were too far back to actually see him.
Below is a picture of Independence Hall. This building has recently taken on new meaning for me because I'm training for a new job this summer. I'm going to be a tour guide for the Philadelphia Ghost Tours! I can't even explain how excited I am about the job, and everyone I mention it to seems excited as well. And then they threaten to come see the tour, which dampens my excitement and makes me nervous. I'm still in the early stages of training--I've only memorized one of the stories--but it's giving me a whole new appreciation for Old City.
