During Our Brief Intermission...
The Egglestonian Creed for great coverage of this week's National Spelling Bee. I don't even have to go there to know this former champion will give his unique perspectives. And yours truly will join with baby brother to go after the BookExpo America Spelling Bee crown in Manhattan this weekend.
Saturday marks week two for the restored Downtown Farmers' Market. Locally produced crafts and produce (mostly leafy greens this early) are the highlight, but watch for musicians, jugglers, and other entertainment as the summer approaches. Join the early risers and late arrivals and get the scoop on upcoming events, like the cooking demonstrations planned by Federal Hill and Ermin's.
Sunday at the Carnegie Center, Americans United to Preserve Social Security will hold a town hall meeting to lay out the facts about this naked attempt to restructure retirement and disability security while raising your taxes, mostly to the benefit of idealogy, those making more than $90,000 a year, and the financial services and brokerage industries, who have long coveted those commissions and fees.
