Workers this morning began installing the first of 600 banners sporting messages welcoming those attending the Republican National Convention to Minneapolis and St. Paul. The first of the banners went up at 9 a.m. today on Hennepin Avenue between 6th and 7th streets and in St. Paul on streets near the Xcel Energy Center where the conventions runs Sept. 1-4. Banners will be hung along Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis today. Banners along with floor decals will be placed throughout the baggage claim area at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport starting Monday.

I think that law enforcement in the Twin Cities (and suburbs) are in for a rude awakening when the professional trouble makers roll into town for the convention. I’ll wager that they will be ill-prepared for the crap (literally) that they will encounter on the streets.

Hopefully, they’ll be paying real close attention to what goes on in Denver and just maybe, they’ll realize that they will be in the fight of their lives.
