Democratic National Convention set to start in Charlotte, North Carolina

A sand sculpture of President Barack Obama needed repairs after some unexpected rain.
This reminds me of Shelly's poem:

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Jammie Wearing Fool notes the California Delegates are off to a good start:  One stupid falling down drunk to the point of injury and one threatened with arrest.  Names withheld?  How does that work?
