Ever wonder where you fit in the Jacksonville socio-political scene? Up until yesterday, I never did, but after attending President Barack Obama’s “grassroots rally” at the Prime Osborn Convention, I know exactly where I stand, rather, sit.
Judging by seat placement, I fall somewhere between City Councilman John Crescembeni and Edward Waters College President (and former sheriff) Nat Glover, who were four and six rows behind me, respectively…
and Rhiannon Owens renowned drag queen and host of Hambingo at Hamburger Mary’s, who had a primo spot standing in the barricaded section directly in front of the podium.
One of the real mover and shakers, however, turned out to be Dave McDonald (aka Jax Food Critic), who appeared to have the best seat in the house, assuming you’d rather appear on CNN standing behind the president than actually see his face the entire time he’s speaking.
