Republican National Convention Cancels Program for First Day

Thanks to the Wall Street Journal.

Ohio Rep. John Boehner, the House minority leader and chairman of the convention, said the legally required business, including approval of the rules and the platform, would take place but "there would not be much beyond that."

Its the right thing to do. It would be improper and insensitive to have a giant party (which is essentially what a national convention is) until we know the scope and scale of this storm.
