    He’s staying at the Westin downtown and the City Center garage is totally empty this morning. It’s been funny seeing the cars scrambling, trying to find a parking spot when they normally park at City Center. Also, I will not be going home for lunch since they are closing Fourth Street from Broad to Gay from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. I guess I will go to Dirty Franks or Little Palace for lunch today.

    4th was still open at 10ish when I went through. I was trying to figure out why downtown was a cluster (71 was backed up to just east of the split, traffic seemed a bit heavier for that time) when I hit that section of 4th and saw the protestors and mass police presence.

    What sort of things were people protesting?

    I think the pro-choicers were out.

    Views from my front porch yesterday.

    Townsfolk headed to the backyard discussion.

    Crazy motorcade.

    Edited to switch the double posted photo.

    Sadly, no. Second neighborhood I’ve lived in Columbus with no sidewalks.

    Who wants to edit this to show them as an angry mob? Insert pitch forks, shovels, torches, maybe a bazooka or two? LMAO!

    Thanks for the pics, Amy. What a neat experience! My mom would have never let me meet the POTUS in jeans though, lol. Come on, girl, put on a dress!

    I grew up in a neighborhood in the suburbs (of Cincy) that had no sidewalks. It’s a bummer, but not the end of the world, IMHO.

    It looks like you have curbs though. I would rather have curbs on a minimally traveled street than sidewalks. Without them, people can’t seem to figure out where the street stops and the yard begins….so you’re not safe in the street or the grass! :)

    They already are! They’re brainwashed by Barry himself.
