Is there a better way to cap off Presidents Weekend than to read about your shiny new President coming to your very own neighborhood to do Something Big and Important? I think not.
That's right, President Obama - already sick of Washington and looking for every opportunity to get outta Dodge - is coming to Denver tomorrow (Tuesday) to officially sign the landmark economic-stimulus bill. He's coming to one of my favorite spots in the city, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, to do the deed. Other than Colorado being a leader in science, technology and alternative energy thinking, I'm thinking it's because the DMNS is one of the largest public institutions covered in solar panels.
Sadly, the Big O event is by invite only and closed to the public. Still, it's just 5.2 miles from my home so I'll just have lean northward tomorrow and send my love and support vibrationally.
Random Presidential Factoid Needing a Home: Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was the son of a poor, illiterate frontiersman and lost his mother as a child? And that he had barely 18 months of a formal education? That's true grit, baby.
