I have been granted the honor of blogging the LPoC showcase downtown today. I take these things seriously, so I will probably try to write a quick post about each of the candidates pitch speeches, though this ambition may get scaled back to Joyce and Justin's. Maybe MHF's if I'm in a bad mood and want to hurl abuse. Physically, I will be there for at least part of the show so as to absorb the triumphant vibe that surely must emanate from such a transplendant coagulation of Liberalness, but may skip out the boring bits (ie any musical tributes). Again, I'm not sure what I'll do when Ms. Findlay speaks; I may stick around to observe how quickly the room turns against her. I'm bringing one of those fancy digital stop-watches that can measure to the 1/100th of a second.
Otherwise I will be splitting time among ancillary events, particularly the Progblogs do at Omar's place.
As to the issue of slow ticket sales, I'm told this problem has been overblown. Its also been rumored that the LPoC has tasked ex MP Joe Volpe with scaring up a few extra bodies. So we'll see if my dead grandma is in attendance.
I will also be on twitter for the event. where I write as @Bigcitylib2. At some point soon, though not necessarily today, I will endorse one of the candidates. Not that anyone cares. But I will.
