Hey y'all, as a member of the media I got one of those emails that alerts us reporters to something on the horizon so we can be prepared. With all due respect, though this is intended more for me than the general public, I think you might want to be aware of an event coming and start thinking about your wardrobe. Sweetie, you're going to be a star. So there aren't a lot of details, this is just a notice to the press, but add this to your calendar and start thinking about what you want to do. Thank you, Mary Helen Schmidt, for the heads up.
