Where We Stand
The White House engravers are printing the invitations. The Caligraphers are addressing the envelopes. The Marine Band is practicing. If you are coming to the party, I need a guest list. As you can see, it is shaping up to being quite an affair.
Rules: Before Sunday Night name 9 guests living or dead to sit at your table. Name a guest of Honor and a President to be voted on at a later date. Make any silly remarks you would like. Do you best not to duplicate guests, but I'll sort it out later if you do.
