My evil pan has been foiled

I had planned on getting tickets for this event and attempt live blogging from the speech. Thanks to the liberal students at the U, my plan has been foiled.

Tickets go fast for Clinton speech

Former President Clinton has been out of office for five years but he still draws a crowd.

About 5,000 tickets for his Nov. 5 University of Minnesota lecture became available this morning. At three ticket distribution locations, which opened at 8 a.m., all the tickets were gone before 8:10 a.m. At a fourth location, which opened at 10 a.m., there were enough people waiting in line by 8 a.m. that all the tickets were spoken for.

"We are just overwhelmed by how excited people are to attend this lecture," said Julie Lund, spokeswoman for the U's Humphrey Institute. There will be a rush lineopen at 4 p.m. at Northrop Auditorium on Nov. 5 but Lund said it is entirely possible there will be no tickets available there either.

Those without tickets can still hear Clinton's lecture — the program will be broadcast at 7 p.m. on Nov. 5 on Minnesota Public Radio's 91.1 FM.

What it an "Evil Pan"?

Is it made with the soul of an orphan?

I had talked a liberal friend of mine into getting me a ticket when she got hers and then planned on using it as an occassion for a first date. Turns out she got there at 8:30 and they were gone. Damn that Bill Clinton and his popularity!
