RNC 2008: Day 1

Posted at 9:12 AM on September 1, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

With Gustav hitting the other end of the Mississippi, today's RNC events have been scaled back. That noted, the protest march planned for today will still go on.

Share your links to coverage or posts that I should check out, too. What else is on deck:

* Here's the link to MPR's RNC coverage collection.

* Bob Collins updates on News Cut... My pick: Where is everyone?

* Keep up with RNC info on MPR's Convention Beat. Tim Nelson lets you know that coming tomorrow (now today) will be yesterday's news.

*MPR's RNC Multimedia page will grow as we gather more images and video.

Join our online open discussion, or find another path to submit your images and insights.

100% RNC free

It is true! There is daily life going on in Minnesota outside the politics and protests. Each day during the convention I'll open one discussion for those who have their focus elsewhere...

* Today is the last day of the Minnesota State Fair. Check our activity schedule, and if you can't attend, check out this VERY COOL 360 degree image feature to see what the fair is like. Slide 12 might be my favorite, but I like the lamb show.

* Did you know there's actually prizes for product placement in movies? Movie Natters has the link.

* Winona County considering 4-day work week. Well, I consider one too, but that doesn't go anywhere.

* Turns out land values are on the rise - even for non-prime farmland.

* Celebrity Gossip, Classical Style! That naughty, naughty Puccini.

All that and Gustav. Join our online discussion about everything BUT the RNC.

Your photos tell the story: Today in St. Paul
