In Passing

‘‘If only Comrade Stalin knew what is being done in his name’’

Mark Caputo, The Miami Herald:

At one point, a member of the audience, Andrew Rothberg, had his Galaxy Note II smartphone taken from him by security, which removed his picture of [Hillary] Clinton onstage and then gave his device back in front of a Miami Herald reporter in the auditorium stands.

‘‘It’s crazy,’’ Rothberg said.

‘‘That’s American politics,’’ said a docent, one of a handful of hotel security and volunteers who roamed the aisles looking for people taking pictures or making recordings.  None was allowed.

‘‘I wanted to take pictures for my girls; I have four girls,’’ Rothberg, who was writing a piece about the conference for Boca Raton-based Grey Matters Magazine, told the Miami Herald.  ‘‘I think Hillary Clinton who is probably running for president in 2016 would want all the publicity she could get and I think it’s kind of ironic they would take the camera away.’’

Rothberg said he was more puzzled than upset.
True believers simply can’t imagine that the objects of their adoration might actually be thugs.

He’ll probably vote for her, anyway.
