I am in the main ballroom.  John McCain just spoke.  It was moving and I have decided to suspend my blogging until the financial crisis has been solved.

OK, seriously, there is a panel starting with Tom Brokaw, T. Boone Pickens, Gavin Newsom, Shimon Peres and a woman whose name I missed and will get later.  Barack Obama will address the event after the panel.  I will write a summary of everything after this.
