Facing my usual, "It's seven o'clock, say something interesting" deadline, and for once, I've got a topic: the NRA Convention. They've stuck a sign up on Lucas Oil Stadium* every bit of three stories tall and not even the Local Noooz Media can ignore it -- though the one I usually watch in the morning did follow with a story about how Indianapolis has been invited to submit a hosting packing for 2016 Democrat convention. One local Partei light observed this "...would finally put Indianapolis on the map," presumably in the way that the NRA convention or, say, a century (give or take a couple World Wars) of automobile racing has somehow failed to.
At least I will (probably) be able to attend the NRA event; at one point it was looking unlikely and I may still spend a fair amount of time hiding in the press room; but I am a-going there, braving the crowds, and we'll see what happens.
* Precisely what function an "Oil Stadium" serves I do not know and find myself reluctant to ask. One presumes it to have, ahem, "Wessonality."
