Obama in Monroe on Monday

How exciting. When I called my parents yesterday on the train ride back from LAX (yes, we did take a plane, train, bus and car all in the same day) my dad told me the news... OBAMA WILL BE AT HIS UNION HALL ON MONDAY!! How exciting!! I wish I would be able to be there (I am sure a lot of people wish they could, but apparently there are only 300 tickets). Anyway, my parents will both be there (I doubt I have mentioned this before, but if you didn't know, my daddy-o is the Business Agent for Local 671, which is where the little shin-dig will be held), so I told them to take plenty of pictures (so that I can report the news here too, hehe. Here is a link to the article that ran in the Toledo Blade about his trip.
