I understand that the Republican National Convention will be held in the Twin Cities in 2008. Naturally I am curious as to your reaction to this news -- laughter or tears? I know that, as a Midwesterner, you're well aware of your social obligations to be a good host. On the other hand, your political philosophies may compel you to do otherwise. I am sure part of you really wants to be on the road at that time -- or maybe you want to invite these invaders over to the Fitzgerald Theater for a show. What could be better than getting them to pay for being the butt of the jokes?
Either way, I'm sure I'll enjoy the show -- assuming I'm back from Baghdad to hear it.
Greg, you come back from Baghdad and we'll put on a show for them at the Fitzgerald. Usually our season doesn't start until late September, but traditions are made to be broken.
