Debating the debate

After having the opportunity to watch the first presidential debate at the Newseum hosted by PBS we got some interesting reactions in two reports you can hear by clicking below. The event's initial purpose was to promote Frontline's "The Choice 2012". It is a two-hour long documentary that "journeys into the places, people, and decisive moments that made the men who are competing for the presidency." It airs Tuesday, October 09 — 09:00pm on WETA and Maryland Public Television.

How about a charity fund raiser that went up in smoke?

Well, that WAS the idea behind W Curtis Draper's "13th Annual Little Puff" an intimate gathering of cigar lovers (limited to 300 people). Proceeds from ticket sales and the auction benefit three local academic scholarships (The Erik Kristensen Memorial Scholarship in honor of a Navy SEAL killed in action; The Pat Krimm Scholarship & The Anne Berman Memorial Scholarship). As well as money for Breast Cancer programs at Sibly Hospital.
