Transportation plan details for DNC

Hello again everyone, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 5:00PM—we are exactly one month from the start of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte and DNC officials today released their plan to move people to and from the parties and events.  But the question remains—how will ordinary people who live and work in Uptown manage their daily lives with 6,000 delegates in town?  Charlotte will become a bubble of traffic the first week of September and we'll share details of what to expect. 

It's national "Same Sex Kiss-In" day at Chick-Fil-A.  Are there many gays and lesbians going to the restaurants to kiss each other?  Our reporter Dedrick Russell is checking out the local restaurants and says so far, the protest pales by comparison to the hundreds of thousands who showed up this week to show support for Chick-Fil-A's owner.  The "Kiss-In" is scheduled to happen at 8:00PM tonight.
