Default things got weird in san jose the other day...

Finally started working full time again a couple of weeks ago and have been living on an airplane. Earlier this week, I was in San Jose visiting a customer who builds public transit buses. Pretty cool operation and watching something of that size and complexity getting built was awesome. All done by hand. No production robots.

Turns out, Trump was at the convention center next to the Hilton where I was staying. He gave a speech on Thursday evening and the aftermath, from both protestors and police, was something I had never experienced. Total chaos.

I am not a political person. It is one of two things that I won't discuss because the dividing lines are highly personal and very deep. These are presented without comment except to say that I have never seen anything go south by sideways so quickly.

I find it ironic and sad that they are all protesting against "hate" with violence, intimidation and hate.
