Extravaganza! - I saw them rehearsing the lighting last night for the NFL Kickoff down on the Mall. It was actually fairly impressive, what with dozens of computer-coordinated searchlights beaming into the humid night sky. Alas, not even the likes of Britney, Mary J. and Good Charlotte can get me to attend the controversial sports-government-commerce fest this evening. Unless you are military, you won't be able to get close to the stage, and the weather isn't likely to cooperate anyway.
