Repub Convention—empty?

I'm going to New York tomorrow for an eight-day excursion. I would have chosen some time when there is not a neo-con horde there, but there's an event at a retreat center in the Catskills this weekend that I want to attend. For at least a few hours, though, I'll be in New York City when Mr. Bush is there, and hope to check out some of the street action in person.

Here's a short piece on Mother Jones's web site about Madison Square Garden being empty. I wonder if we can tell from the television coverage that the cameras are avoiding parts of the floor?

I did consider flying in to Buffalo instead, but ultimately chose the more exciting city, partly because by the time I got down to buying the ticket this week, LGA and JFK were significantly cheaper destinations than BUF.
