Thursday night, I will be in Charlottesville VA, en-route to Richmond VA for a gathering of Tesla-coil builders, nuclear fuioneers, and other odd, assorted, esoteric high-tech geeks.
My dilemma is, where will I watch the the Biden-Palen VP debate? I would like to watch it in the company of others, as opposed to alone in my hotel room at the Omni Hotel near the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville.
So I called the hotel to see if the debate would be on any public TeeVees there.
"Well," the concierge told me, "if there are no football games, you might be able to watch in our restaurant...."
So, let me get this straight: the fate of the free world could be sliding into the hands of a bimbo from Alaska, but I only get to watch the debate at my hotel if there's no football games on?
Sometimes, you just have to think, if that's where America's priorities lie, maybe we deserve whatever fate befalls us as a nation.
Go UVA! Go Sarah!
