Saturday, a gray drizzly day, presented an almost empty downtown. I guess I haven't got used to the Reds fans not being around anymore. Or maybe the rain just knocked down the ambient noise making the place appear more empty than it really was. Or it could have been everyone was on Sycamore voting, there was a vibrant, raucous crowd there waiting to vote. I saw an out of town friend back to vote but missed Vivica Fox and Lawrence Fishbourne.
