$5 suggested contribution to cover expenses. This is a non-partisan affair, you don't have to support either candidate. Permalink to this paragraph

Last time we had about 200 people, not sure how many will show up this time. The projection should be better this time. We're probably going to go with CNN, because of their fancy real-time polling tech, but I'll bring the EyeTV receiver with me, in any case.  Permalink to this paragraph

Raines is arranging for Cheesboard pizza, as last time -- but instead of All You Can Eat, this time it's Pay Per Slice.  Permalink to this paragraph

It was really nice last time to watch the debate with 200 fellow Californians, and people mostly didn't talk over the candidates, which of course is really good.  Permalink to this paragraph
