Currently, there are about 8 people protesting outside the Westin Hotel. Perhaps the extreme cold has kept their numbers down. Meanwhile, there are a number of college students in the audience who, instead of going to class this week, have chosen to follow the proceedings, here. They appear to be interested in learning how the party works.
The Meeting has adjourned for lunch. The election of officers, will take place after they reconvene at 1:00.
This concludes this post. See Part II after lunch.
