Sunday/ the donkeys are in Philadelphia

It’s the Democrats’ turn for their convention this week, held in Philadelphia.  There are 57 fiberglass donkey statues around town, part of the host committee’s Donkeys Around Town program.  A donkey is the Democratic party’s symbol and there are 50 for the states, five for U.S. territories, one for Washington, D.C., and one for Democrats Abroad.

Here is Washington State’s donkey. That’s a jumping salmon on its hind leg.
