Obama in Elkhart
I woke up today to an email from my Dad asking how come I hadn’t mentioned Obama being in Elkhart on w-g yet. HUH? (Oh, maybe because we just had a mammoth natural disaster and nearly 200 people are dead? The newspapers are kinda full of that.) But regardless, I was excited to hear that Obama chose Elkhart to try to sell the American people on his stimulus package. I mentioned before that Elkhart – where most of my immediate family live – currently has the highest unemployment rate in the country. The RV industry there has collapsed. Thankfully no one in my family is out of work yet, but several are on mandatory reduced hours. Dad told me that thousands of people lined up to get tickets to the event. (He also scornfully mentioned that someone then tried to scalp one on Craig’s List.) I’m going to try to find some news coverage of the actual meeting…
