Okay, time for an Convention Week intermission. I’ll be back this evening to live-blog the keynote address and the First Lady’s speech, and probably more.

    Well, after covering the Fire-breathing Dragon's Convention last week, it must be nice to look forward to seeing some Knights, and REAL "Ladies."

    I'll try to stay up to watch the "Keynote," and Michelle, but, even unemployed after all of these years, I'm still an "early to bed, early to rise" kind of person - even if I'm not particularly 'healthy,' the opposite of 'wealthy,' and of questionable and dubious 'wisdom.'

    Is Ted Strickland always this chipper? His style is kind of annoying, although his message is good.

    I don't even have a TV. What time does the mainstream channels' coverage kick in?
