There was a brush with local and Internet celebrity for anyone in attendance at the Travis County Democratic Party Convention on Saturday. Who was that sporting the handy wooden sign for Precinct 242 (up in North Austin between North Lamar and Burnet Road)? Why, none other than precinct delegate (and editor-in-chief/self-titled "Head Geek" of Austin-based Ain't It Cool News), the one and only Harry Knowles. Before you ask, he was covered in Obama stickers.
