Visual Editors Rob Montgomery reports from Chicago

I travelled downtown Chicago today to hand-deliver my visa application to the Indian Consulate so that I may visit Hyderabad in a couple weeks and I had a couple of hours to kill before catching the Metra train back to Naperville.

I walked around Grant Park (See my annotated map above) (and I do mean AROUND as there was no ordinary privilege to pass through as a pedestrian today) with all the cops and fencing up already for the Obama Presidential Rally. That is the official name today of this venue formerly known as Grant Park. TV satellite trucks have long queued up on Columbus Drive and the ticketed and non-ticketed patron areas are clearly defined and defended.
