One entrant asked if he could buy me a breakfast to rig the results. My response: Attempts to bribe the publisher are grounds for disqualification, so we better ask for separate checks. Hey, this is a serious contest! :)

Reflections on Hillary rally I attended Sen. Clinton’s rally Monday at the Zembo Temple in Harrisburg. (CLICK HERE to view a Linglestown TV report.) The Clinton campaign packed the place with labor union members, primarily AFSCME members. … To gauge how many people attended, a warm-up gal asked everyone to send a text message to her cellphone, and sweetened the pot by announcing that one person would be selected to meet Hillary backstage. I didn’t have my cell phone on me. … The secret service agents scared me. … I had a gigantic urge to shout out “Your go girl!” during Hillary’s speech, but decided to keep my big yap shut and focus on getting some good video. … As you would expect, the place was crawling with local and national media. All the satellite trucks (see picture) parked out the Zembo created enough diesel fumes to gag a rat. Presidential campaigns clearly are not "green."
