Boston’s summer of the DNC, 2004

In 2004, Boston was effectively shut down for a week as the Democratic National Convention, with Tom Menino’s help, shoved everyone out of the way. I wrote quite a few blog posts about it back then; they’re no longer available in their original location, but I’ve collected some of them into a page on the Democratic occupation of Boston.

In my first post, I hoped that someday “people will look back on Boston in 2004 as a period of insanity comparable to the McCarthy hearings.” In the last one, I reported that the state of emergency had been made permanent. We’re still living in it, as the latest Super Bowl shows.
