Obama's mysterious visit

Okay, maybe it's not all that mysterious, but it sure seems like it to an acquaintance trying to figure out when and where to fork over the admission fee. Have money, will donate. Unlike Edwards' visit, where news stories told how to hand over the cash, the items on Obama have been as discreet as a Provo ankle-showing party. An e-mail to the address specified in an earlier news story generated an eerie silence.

Never have so many worked so hard to donate to so few. Give it up, I suggested. You'll need the money when Utah's economy skyrockets from that legislative trip to China.

Obama, we hardly saw ye.

Not sure why your friend is having trouble. Have him contact Mark Gilbert, who is helping organize the event. His cell is 561-350-5030, or home 435-940-9430.

Will do. For the uninitiated, where is that information available? Apparently it wasn't in the news items, but is there a website or something with the details?

I'm not sure how Mark advertised the event. He sent us a flier, which we blogged about on Obama's web site, as well as my personal blog.

You need to read The Utah Amicus more often VOU, the information was posted and easily googled.

A Google search was run for "Barack Obama" and "Park City," but maybe she wasn't persistent enough in reading the results. I think that's where the e-mail address was found from which no response was received. I'm not being critical of anyone; it just seemed easier to get the info re Edwards, or maybe it was just the luck of the draw.
