Mitt Romney came to UI today and spoke on healthcare. My boss made it over in between surgeries to listen to the talk and because he was the only one in scrubs and a white coat, Romney picked him out and asked him a question about healthcare. If you want to read more about the speech (and to see what my boss had to say), go to the side bar and click on the University of Iowa. One of the news items is regarding Romney's speech. It was a little ironic that of all the people in the room, Romney (a former stake president) picked on a member of our stake presidency. He is not as good a speaker as Obama but he is more substantial. Instead of just spouting platitudes he actually laid out some ideas. Since he came during Thanksgiving break, the speech was not as well attended as Obama's was a couple of months ago but there was still a good number of people in attendance. It felt a little like stake conference with all the wards in Iowa City represented.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Michelle put out a blanket email invitation to everybody to feel free to join us this holiday season if your travels take you this way.
