  • The scene this afternoon on West 6th.

When the former leader of the free world comes to town, you expect a lot: cordoned-off streets, Blackhawks above on a circle pattern, snipers capping the roofs of nearby buildings — all the Hollywood fixings. That, however, was not the case downtown today. Except for around 75 onlookers and media types hanging along West 6th through the lunch break, former President Bill Clinton rode into town unnoticed, sans pomp and fanfare.
