I can’t believe that I’m actually going to willingly stuff myself into a enclosed space with a thousand or so strangers.
I must be losing my mind.
On the other paw — guns. I’m willing to bet that the exhibited gun collections are going to be awe-inspiring.
And I’ll have a press pass. I have no idea what to do with a press pass, or even what it entails, but I imagine that my lady will help me suss it out.
Good friends will be there, and Phlegmmy assures me that we’ll probably make even more friends before the weekend is over.
That will be odd.
postscript: Does anyone else find it a bit incongruous that there’s a note at the bottom of the NRA Annual Meeting page that states:
“The city of St Louis prohibits the carrying of firearms at the America’s Center Convention Complex”.
Not “prohibits the carrying of concealed firearms” or “prohibits the unlawful carrying of firearms”. Just: “Carrying Firearms Verboten”.
At a meeting of the National Rifle Association. At a convention center named “America’s Center Convention Complex”.
So far yet to go.
