Republican Convention Ready to Begin

    Tomorrow marks the beginning of  seminal event of the 2016 US Election cycle: the Republican Convention.   It is being held in Cleveland, Ohio, a city of high unemployment and difficult race relations among its citizens.  The Republicans are keeping their many fingers crossed as the sharp divides among electors has kept the meeting in the forefront of political discussion for some months.
Some predict a Trump win; others think there will be surprises and a coup among traditional Republicans.   Having selected Mike Pence, a Senator from Indiana as his vice presidential running mate, not much has changed in the attitude toward candidate Trump-the buffoon's buffoon.
      The media is demonstrating its love of spectacle for its coverage; the rest of us will be watching "Top Chef".
