I am so tired this morning. I was out way past my bedtime last night - for a good cause. MoveOn.org's Vote for Change tour stopped in Kansas City last night and played at the Midland Theater, a 3,500-seat venue on the National Register of Historic Places. We in the energetic yet subdued audience were treated to 3 solid hours of rick, folk and blues courtesy of Keb' Mo', Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne. All of them were amazing, but I have to point out that Bonnie Raitt is fucking phenominal. She is what? 55 years old and rocks out like a speed-freak on extra Special-K (she has been sober for 17 years, btw).
I didn't get to watch the debate between old 'n' busted and the new hotness, but I have read that Edwards did very well. It is hard to guage the mood of a nation in a room full of people of the Liberal persuastion, but I left feeling hopeful. Less than a month to go... this is so very stressful.
