1. He's going to be in town in a couple hours. Thought I'd check out the crowd.

The headquarters are small, so he'll have to be outside in the parking lot. I doubt the crowd will be very large.

2. Let us know how many "paid crowd members"

you were able to observe.

If more than twenty that would be huge.

Wonder how much they pay ?

The going rate should be at least $100 to listen to LYenRyan and $1000 to listen to Kingdimwitt and Queenann

3. I drove over to the grocery store across the street.

The area wasn't that big, to begin with, and then they had a long fire truck in a V shape with a semi, blocking any view. I could see a small white tent that might hold 50 or so, but there were tarps strung up so you couldn't see much of the area where people would be standing. That didn't count the R/R bus that arrived after I left and would have blocked even more.

This morning's paper said there were 500-600 there, which has to be a lie, as there wouldn't have been that much room left for people to stand. The grocery next door had a lot of cars parked, but not enough to make that number unless they car-pooled. What I DID notice in the photo of the "crowd" were a lot of young males' heads...a higher number than I can imagine would be there from this area. I'm thinking they were bussed in, but I can't prove that. I haven't talked with anyone who was there, although I have a T-Party member who lives nearby that was in the headquarters and interviewed. That's a joke in itself.

He spoke for 12 minutes. Sports, hunting, his sister-in-law's frugalness of putting her leftover dogfood in the freezer (hopefully, from the bag and not from the bowl) and other silly stuff. It doesn't sound like any policy info was revealed. Overall, a quickie. It DID make me mad that they tied up a fire truck at our expense, I'm sure.
