I got another reminder of the Young Republicans' Huck-a-bus trip to Ames, Iowa for the big Republican straw poll. And I had an idea that definitely is better than a long bus trip. I've been given a promise from the lead organizer to send messages and, I hope, photos from the trip and campaign activities. I''ve promised to post them here for the folks back home. And I'll throw in a case of PBR for the welcome-home party if they come through.
