Thanks for all the dates.

They are now a part of my public calendar.


http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=mark.rauterkus%40gmail.com&ctz=America/New_York

It would be great if the 'bloggers guild' used a Google Calendar so that they can be easily merged.

Others who would like to keep dates, on my public calendar, can easily email me and I'll set you up as a contributor -- a 'running mate for calendars' so to speak.

Clinton supporters should definitely get out and enjoy these, because my sense is, from what I'm reading, a number of party elders are about to bring this race to an end.

I hope Hillary doesn't come under sniper fire in Greensburg. I can see her point though, I guess if I never came under sniper fire in my life I would have misspoke too and say I did. Honest mistake. I wonder if she'll be for or against NAFTA? The Tribune Review , the same paper that spent millions trying to tie the Clinton's to Vince Foster's death, spent millions to get enough dirt on the Clinton's to impeach him. Hillary has no morals left, she allows the Trib to interview her. She sold her soul to the devil.
