Something appears to be missing Monday night the Democratic convention. The ‘boo birds’ have fallen off dramatically since about 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. That’s not an accident.

Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry, a Bernie Sanders delegate said the senator’s call to supporters to be polite has had an effect. And where it hasn’t, his supporters are sometimes taking care of things.

Terry said he had “remind North Dakota Bernie delegates that Senator Sanders said not to boo. They haven’t booed since.”

Terry said he raised the issue “nicely but firmly” after listening to a “small cluster of North Dakota ‘Bernie or bust’” people boo for two hours.
