The Olympics (which this blog boycotted) were OK, but the real show starts tonight with the Democratic National Convention. I’ve been faithfully watching the convention … all but one (no TV in the jungle) … since I was born, though the first one I actually remember was 68. And of course, there has not been once like 68 since.

The big question tonight: Is Ted Kennedy going to appear in person? Other than that, we are also awaiting Michelle Obama’s Lemonade recipe. I think Amy Klobuchar may have a role (though perhaps just in the coverage).

I say Teddy Talks. And probably Michelle can make me start drinking Lemonade. Which I do not do now.

    Well, it turns out your prediction was correct! Teddy’s appearance was inspiring. It was pretty spectacular to see someone that the press and the rest of the world had written off as practically dead….

    I thought Michelle’s speech was bland in content, but her style was extraordinary. Her mannerisms were what moved me, and I pulled from her speech that it was delivered honestly. I think it is more important to have her as First Lady than it is to have Obama as president.
