So I saw on the news that Ron Paul was in MN, so I checked if he was going to be anywhere near me. It turns out he was speaking about 10 miles from my house, so I decided to go check it out. The news stories always talk about the enthusiasm of his fans, but they really don't do justice to it. It was amazing. I've been to rock concerts with less enthusiasm. We got there about 10 minutes before it started, and there was a line waiting to get in, and they said it was "less than standing room only" inside. Eventually they opened up some garage style doors at the back out into the 30 degree MN day, and people stood outside watching him through the garage doors.Once he started talking one of his people came by and started shuffling people around to fit more people in, and we ended up listening to his speech from about 10 feet away at the bottom of some stairs. When he finished he came down the stairs and shook hands and was very sweet to my kids. I'm glad I went, it really was an 'event'.
I'd be excited to meet BATMAN as well!
