This is not a slow news day, it is "election day", why is Patch doing a patch wide question on what music the lions(14 miles away) are going to play? One knows the ppl who answer this, are going to over run the post box, how many are from other cities? since it is Patch wide. are probably the ones who can't be botherd to vote, if they know about this group then they are part of the invincibles, (don't need health care, never will die) I feel this could of been run on a slow day, like T"day----- smile
