I spotted Reg Krueger sitting Monday lunchtime in the mostly empty seats of the Pepsi Center hours before the convention would open on the floor. The singer John Legend was rehearsing on stage and Krueger looked very pleased to be sitting there watching. It turns out her pleasure was much more a sense of pride than anything else. Krueger, an electrician, and her fellow stagehands have been working for four weeks setting up the lighting for the convention.
