Rise and Shine

Good Morning Summer and Good Afternoon Autumn!

That's right, Summer officially ends around noon today, when Autumn officially takes over. Nowadays, though, the seasons all seem to blend together, so the big 'Kick Off Autumn' parties can wait until the weekend.
That is, unless you are treking out to Media some time today. Then again, it's probably not a good idea to trek out to Media unless you want to get stuck in traffic and the crush of John McCain/Sarah Palin supporters.
Took a drive out there Sunday evening to do some food shopping and swung around near the courthouse to see what was happening.
Tell you what, McCain and Palin can joke all they want about Barack Obama's stage during the Democratic National Convention (Yes, it was gaudy, but what about this election isn't gaudy?), but it from the amount of steal and stage being built on the courthouse steps, you would think Van Halen or Bruce Springsteen was playing this afternoon.
It appears this whole election thing is all a rock concert with stars standing on a stage. Here's hoping they can entertain as much as Van Halen or Springsteen.
By the way, in case you were wondering, Ron Reagan made a stop in Media during his march to re-election in 1984. Here's what it looked like:
