Kitzhaber's Room Half-Empty

Posted by Alison Hallett on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 7:56 PM

According to his Facebook event page, Kitzhaber's party has 71 confirmed guests. I'd put the number of people in the Melody Ballroom right now at roughly half that, despite a posted start time of 7:30 pm—most of the candle-lit, white-clothed tables are still empty, which means... more lanyards for me! Yes, complimentary lanyards abound.

A better-attended display of democracy unfolds on two big big screens, where Dancing with the Stars is playing.

Here, for your consideration, Fire Fighters for Kitzhaber. Sure, the color is unflattering, but still: firefighters.
