So, yeah, Indianapolis Well, here

So, yeah, Indianapolis

Well, here I am in Indianapolis and, despite dire warnings to the contrary, it's actually pretty damned cool. Well, it's pretty damned cool where I'm staying, which is right downtown, about a block from the RCA dome.

Indianapolis is weird, though. One second you're driving through the slummiest slums that ever slummed, and the next second you're among high rise buildings and plush hotels. My hotel, the Omni Severin, is right on the borderline, but there's a really great mall right across the street, and obscene number of restaurants all around, and a good mix of bars. All in all, I landed in a pretty fortunate area.

And there's a cheerleading competition going on here, too. Now, before all you guys get jealous, I should note that it's a JUNIOR cheerleading competition, which means little elementary and middle school girls bouncing around, so it's actually disappointing. It's weird though, being crammed on an elevator with all these young girls wearing more make-up than Tammy Faye Baker, and enough perfume to drown out even a Marshall Fields perfume spritz tunnel. I'm also told the Penn State NCAA women's basketball team is staying at our hotel, but I have yet to see any players. At least I don't think I've seen any players.

Anyway, I must go attend a press conference. More updates as time and events warrant.
