How do you prepare for a presidential visit to your area?
Bush is expected to visit Henry Kissinger's home in Kent on Friday. It was supposed to be a secret at first, but someone slipped to the press that they had received one $1,000 invitation to the event (It's $10,000 if you want your picture taken with the monkey-faced man).
Connecticut Republicans, of course, are going crazy. Democrats as well, but in a different way. They are planning protests and gatherings in Kent. They are sending out press releases and arguing about the war.
Me? I'll be working 4-5 hours unpacking pottery and then heading to the paper to look at photos of Bush's visit. Perhaps I'll see a glimpse of his Marine 1 helicopter, or a photo of it. More likely, there will just be endless photos of protesters. Whichever, Bush will be long gone from the state before I even start my "real" workday.
