Sheesh! Do I have timing or what?

It will probably not surprise many of my readers that I am a fan of Barack Obama, besides which, he is the President of the United States.  So, when he plans a visit to Shaker Heights High School, one block away from my house, when his motorcade is scheduled to drive in front of my house, where am I going to be?  Not sitting in the front row of the town hall meeting.  Not sitting on my front step watching him go by.  Nope.  I will be on a plane to Las Vegas, a city I loathe (but going to see people I like very much, fortunately).  Sigh!

Maybe you could make it up to him by doing more political posts on this blog. I intend to tone down my responses some.

Ugh. Out of respect for my esteemed colleague, you Ben, I offer this suggestion in all seriousness: Son + Video Camera = Almost like being there. Have a great trip! I share your sentiments about Vegas, but have lots of friends who love it.

I'm so very sorry Ben.. I can do nothing but accept blame for that and hunt down the best milkshake Vegas has to offer

Gab - I'll certainly take you up on the offer, Gab, but I have to warn you that the last time I was there, Andrew and I had quite a search trying to find a milk shake. - Ben

Ben - too bad! But maybe you CAN put up a cardboard cutout of yourself, waving in a friendly fashion...
