So Obama will be (sorta) kicking off the general election campaign in Bristol VA, right down the road from JR's produce and just over the state line from me in Bristol TN.

Why here? It's an interesting, quirky choice.

They seem to have put this town hall togther at the last minute, renting VA high's gym only yesterday. The small number of tickets went fast (gone at 10 am this morning), so I didn't hear in time to get one, or even get on the waiting list.

I'll try to get up early enough to see the circus outside tomorrow morning.
