Patriot Forum Tonight

Well, we're trying this again ... the First Mate and I will be at the Patriot Forum (sponsored by our radio station, AM 1280 The Patriot) in Bloomington, MN to see Michael Medved! The Northern Alliance will be represented by Mitch Berg, The Elder, Saint Paul, and myself, and perhaps a few others as we provide "security" for the event. (Translation: we stand at the door and tell everyone to wait until the dining room is open.)

I'm taking my camera and hope to post a few pictures when I get back. In the meantime, I want to thank everyone who's helped Captain's Quarters get past the 200,000 visitor mark, as of yesterday. Thank you and keep coming back!

UPDATE: No pictures (sorry), but Michael Medved was fabulous! Both The Patriot and Michael himself went way out of their way to mention the Northern Alliance, and we got a nice round of applause from the great crowd at the Sheraton. Michael spoke brilliantly and took a number of questions, and afterwards graciously stood for an hour while people filed past to shake his hand and greet him. He even gave me a hint on solving the mystery of the one fake film in his book from the 70s, The Golden Turkey Awards, one of the funniest looks at the movies ever put to print.

If you ever have a chance to hear him speak, take it. In fact, you can hear him speak on the Salem Radio Network every afternoon. If you're not listening yet, you should be.
