Uh, oh...

GOP Asks Cities to Bid for '08 Convention

More than two dozen cities have been invited to submit bids to explain why they would be the best choice for the 2008 Republican National Convention.

...

Cities that received requests for convention proposals are: Anaheim, Calif.; Atlanta; Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Indianapolis; Los Angeles; Kansas City, Mo.; Memphis, Tenn.; Miami; Minneapolis; Nashville, Tenn.; New Orleans; New York; Orlando, Fla.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pittsburgh; Portland, Ore.; Sacramento, Calif.; San Antonio; San Diego; San Francisco; Seattle; St. Louis, Mo.; and Tampa.

I do not want to be in town the week a national political convention rolls into town. I guess there is only about a 3% chance that Nashville will get this at this point, and I'm sure it would be great for the downtown economy, but I just can't even imagine the traffic and logistics problems that this would cause. And don't even get me started on the influx of left-wing hippie types for their protest-du jour...

Guess I'll start the panic (and start planning a vacation) if Nashville becomes a finalist in late summer...
