Kerry and Affleck Arrive In Town

The phone rang yesterday morning, I reached for it, but gave up my strength and let the answering machine take the call. Well, it was a representative of John Kerry announcing that Kerry will be in Greensburg campaging for the upcoming elections for president. I was shocked.

Today, I reached for my daily Tribune Review newspaper, to see Kerry on the front cover and a popular film actor, Ben Affleck, who will also be tagging along to represent Kerry!

Kerry, Edwards embark on cross-country campaign

Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry plunged into the general election and embarked Friday on a coast-to-coast campaign swing through 21 states aimed at convincing millions of undecided voters that he will stand up for ordinary Americans.

....Making Greensburg, Pennsylvania his third stop of his coast-to-coast tour.

**I'm more excited to see Ben Affleck the most. When celebrities coming to a small town in Pennsylvania, its a breakthrough.

Here's the scoop:

The event will take place in area in front of Ehalt Street by Greensburg's train station.

Campaign organizers said yesterday that final details of the event are still being worked out, but Kerry is expected to address the crowd sometime after 1 p.m. The crowd will be allowed to enter the rally site at 11 a.m.

The event is free, but tickets are needed to enter the rally. Tickets can be obtained through the county's Democratic Party headquarters or printed online from John Kerry's Web site.

While reading the opinion section, I came across Randy Bish's astronomical comics.... this one summed up the Westmoreland County area quite well.
