The Election is On – 2 days away

I received this little letter in the email today.

I know that there were severely limited quantities of these tickets available.  And by the looks of it, I strongly have the potential to be one of those there at the event itself!

Oh, the wonders of being a Technological Independent!

P.S. — Ticket holders should walk towards Grant Park on Congress Parkway, then walk south on Columbus Drive to the site.
For security reasons, do not bring bags. Photo ID is required. Please limit personal items. No signs, banners, chairs, or strollers allowed.

Last chance to donate

Now all I need to do, is get myself a non-expired ID (State Police took mine for “speeding”) and I’ll be gangbusters for the event on Tuesday!  As it is, I’ll already be downtown that day!

On a separate note, I feel it’s a bit insane that Police will take your ID for activities as “bond”, leaving you effectively with no ability to get into government buildings, or even if you’re beaten/left for dead, a piece of paper is hardly any form of “Identification


The above is what you can expect to see if you originally received an email which read:

You will receive further ticketing information in the coming days.

It is unlikely you’ll actually end up getting a ticket if you received an email like this:

Thanks for signing up for the wait list for the Election Night event in Chicago.
If tickets become available, you will receive an email with further ticketing information.
If you do not receive further information, you will not have a ticket and will not be admitted to the event.
The Democratic Party

Sorry to say it is so, but indeed it likely is!

    Not having traveling from store to keep is one from the best why you should shop online considering that the fuel savings will more than make up for shipping fees.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
