Obama Tickets Go Fast at Gone Wired Cafe

I am making this quick post between breaks at the JazzFest, as the Peace Education Center and GLNAWI are sponsoring a peace tent. Word spread quickly last night at the JazzFest about the Obama ticket giveaway at Gone Wired Cafe this morning at 9 a.m. I drove by the cafe last night at about 11:50 p.m. to see if anyone was lining up. The cafe doors were open and I saw a couple sitting in the chairs outside. It turns out, those people were the first in line for tickets.

I got up early this morning and got to the cafe at approximately 7:30 a.m. and already there was a line of people about 5 blocks long winding through the neighborhood behind the cafe. It was quite a scene. I snapped a number of photos and conducted some video interviews. You can see all the photos posted here. I will probably begin posting my video interviews tomorrow morning. So please stop back to check it out.

Ok, I gotta get back to the JazzFest. If you come out to Lansing's Old Town tonight please stop by the peace tent and say "hi"!
