I know McCain is schedule to speak, any news on Obama?
With Gustav a big threat, so much is up in the air (no pun intended). But I'm disappointed McCain's appearance will be by satellite, and Obama hasn't responded. In 2004 Laura sub'd for her husband, and Kerry was there. You'd think with approximately 28,000 seniors in one place, it would be worth a personal appearance by each presidential candidate. Oh. well!
Does anyone out there remember how we were feeling at this same time in 2005? The pre-event was all lined up at Mother's, and everyone was so excited. I remember watching Shepherd Smith on FOX as he was filmed in that French Quarter room on the second floor with a view of Burbon Street, watching everything fall and blow away. . .and all the dreadful days after that. So glad they're evacuating early, and I'm hoping our flights won't be messed up because of the emergency.
Enough remembering. . .we'll all be there on Wednesday. Hope you all have a safe trip.
