An open-and-shut case: GOP umbrella won’t pass security

It’s a good-news, bad-news deal.

First, the good: The goody bag given by the Host Committee to Republican delegates and members of the media when they arrived in St. Paul includes an umbrella. The perfect gift, given the change in the weather.

Ah, but the bad news: Umbrellas don’t pass the security check entering the convention center. Those wishing to pass into the center must give up their umbrellas. — Doug Grow
