[412] Wishing for your presence and toe tapping

Hi Friends and possible "Running Mate(s),"

Let's consider the concept of "Running Mate" for a moment.

When I ran for Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh in 2001, I have to admit,
I was a little weak in the "running mate category." In efforts to strengthen
that concern, I'd love to recruit you, and your ideas. So, as of now, the
auditioning for the roles of "running mates" for the pending Grant Street
shake-up is starting.

As we advance to the 2005 elections, I'd love for YOU to seriously
consider the descriptive handle, "probable running mate." You got this
email. You're reading it. Then you know. You HAVE made the short list.

Let's get a clear about this act of "running." If you're moving, you
could be "running" -- especially to those who are hiding. And, when one
runs, the direction could be "to" - "against" - or "with" something.

It is our honor to inform you you've been recruited to attend a
community concert or three (see below). Please consider these "toe tapping"
opportunities. We don't want to push our fellow running mates too far on
such short notice.

This weekend, our out-of-town RUNNING MATE magnet is MINDY SIMMONS. Mindy is
from Florida and visits Pittsburgh to present three concerts. You are
invited to any and all of them.

pool. Sunday service covers the soulful elements.

Mindy Simmons:
Mindy is a church-camp friend, singer, songwriter, recording artist, and
Floridian with wit. Mindy travels, sings, plays guitar. I know you'll be
impressed with her performances.

Closing INVITE:
A blog feature at allows for your feedback and
comments on various issues. I'd love for you to share your ideas and
perspectives, i.e., We-HAV, Gambling, Act 47, etc. So, hope to see you at a
concert, and at the blog.

Thanks for the consideration.
