    I will do so next year. Maybe 2 or 3 booths. Until then, I will see you all at OLR's Octoberfest! Maybe I'll make it easy on you guys and wear a nametag so we can get acquainted.

    My take on the name issue.

    Obama was born in 1961. At the time Saddam Hussein had been a member of the Ba’ath party for about 4 years and he was a law school dropout supporting himself by teaching secondary school. Granted, he had been involved in some sketchy back-room dealings with our government, but that's neither here nor there.

    I think I would probably be more concerned if Mr. and Mrs. Obama refused to name their son Hussein because they had magically known that a 24 year old, politically active high school teacher in Iraq was going to turn into a dictator much later who prompted U.S. military involvement in two separate wars.

    I know this entire post will be deleted, but seriously - harping on his name is like me saying George W Bush is just like King George III.

    No, no... Gamaliel. The ones he dropped were even weirder.

    Honey, I just knew that he was a Jew because I am also a (non-practicing, familial) Jew. And most Jews identify as Democrat or leaning liberal. Is that okay with you?

    You're so smart! I used to have two middle names (but i dropped one) so I have always been interested in famous people with 2 middle names.

    Warren Harding was born with THREE terrible middle names, and chose the one beginning with G.

    I really didn't follow the situation, so I was curious about what occurred. I know he is a disbarred Jewish neoconservative, which makes him a bit of an odd-duck.

    He was also an accomplished artist, you know. The one he did of Marquis De La Fayette is one of my favorites.

    "A federal investigation led to the conviction of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice."

    Last lines of the article. Anyone know the details about this?

    Finley Breese is the correct spelling. You cheated, didn't you?

    Trivia - anyone know what the "FB" stands for in Samuel F. B. Morse?

    No googling, you cheaters!

    I would think it was the festival committee's job to actively recruit people for booths. That way everyone makes more money, and the community has a better festival. All you people ever do is glad hand and pat each other on the back. It's getting tired.
