P-town Invites President Obama to Celebratation

Congratulations go out to President Obama! Finally, the health care bill has passed! Read the fascinating account of the process in yesterday’s New York Times. I feel ashamed of the way some Americans behaved over the past few months, from my personal encounter with a Scott Brown supporter to Tea Partiers spitting on one congressman and throwing slurs at Barney Frank of Massachusetts this weekend. These must be the same individuals who crashed the early town hall meetings on health care, making us scratch our heads at their civil disobedience and vulgarity.

Did you know the Pilgrim Monument will celebrate its 100th anniversary on August 5? A letter-writing campaign has been launched to encourage President Obama to attend. An official invitation has even been sent out, but Cape residents are being urged to write a letter themselves. Find a template here. If President Obama accepts, then we will really experience Route 6 gridlock the first week of August, which also features the Pan-Mass Challenge bike race to benefit cancer research, August 7-8!
