Y'all come back now, y'heah?

So the Rally in Raleigh (who needs Don King anyway?) was a blast, but there are a few questions.

Most importantly, why be so exclusive in sucking up to the hosts? The speakers (inasmuch as they were audible from the cheap seats) made a big to-do over John E having gone to State, and made no reference at all to meeting his wife at UNC. I know it seems a small thing, but Tarheel fans are scattered all over the state (and then some) -- and the G-lover reports that the Dean himself was seated front and center. Did somebody think a fight would break out? Or is UNC School of Law not prole enough for the John E image?

It's not infuriating, but odd to see an opportunity missed.

Perhaps those nagging questions about the ticket stampeding to the "center" should be left for another post.

There was a mention early on, before they got the sound fixed, and there were (predictably) some boos. Also again when Dean was mentioned. Now it was all good natured, and everyone I saw was laughing as they did it, but I don't think the campaign wanted to give anyone any ammunition. I have to think that Rush et al. would have eaten up any footage of Kerry that involved boos.

Sorry, didn't sign that. Good to see you online! And I really like your domain.
