*rueful look* God love 'em, but those convention organizers have surely put in a heapin' helpin' of cheese. Ironically, there's a lot of interest once you get past the stupid bits...but geez, those stupid bits!
They should also feel free to get rid of those "hosts". At any time. Now.
OTOH, I really liked the firemen and that county chairman from somewhere in the Appalachian bits of Ohio. He got "chillbumps" on his spine...what a great way to say it!
