Ashevilleans, I encourage you to take note now that the commute home anywhere near downtown on Thursday will probably be a total nightmare. I’d look into alternate routes home now, or leave early or late, or work from home. – Jennifer

Added 10:08 a.m. Tues: The rumor that Sesame Street Live was canceled for the Romney appearance doesn’t seem to be true. The whole series of Sesame Street performances has been canceled (not just Thursday), and there is no performance listed for Thursday.

The Citizen-Times states that singer Ronnie Millsap will join Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee in Asheville: Romney to make Asheville stop

    I suppose this is the only way to get people out of their gated communities on the outskirts of the county and into downtown Asheville. Hope they spend some of their money in the restaurants and local businesses. Wow, for some it could be their very first trip into the REAL Asheville.

      And if you see those people from the gated communities, be sure to thank them for paying 90% of the federal income tax in the country. This of course is how the people living in the “Real Asheville” can avail themselves of a menu of free government services all while sitting in the park smoking, protesting, urinating and defecating on the streets, and so many other activities that don’t involve actually working.

    Did Mountain Xpress give this any coverage, other than its story about Big Bird?

    the response from Mittens when one signs up for FREE tickets:

    “Because of the very high demand, a ticket does not guarantee entry. It’s dependent upon what time you arrive at the event and how many people sign up for tickets. The doors open at 3:30 PM and the event begins at 5:30 PM. Please let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!”

    and make sure you bring a photo ID that matches the name on the ticket ….

        Was Larry Gatlin too busy assistant managing at a Wendy’s to come down?

      Biden was just the warmup. And this one will be downtown.

          … according to the Civic Center box office manager, the event was canceled 2 weeks ago due to lack of ticket sales.
