Now That's Some Dedicated Voters
According to Reuters, U.S. expats jump on planes to vote in home states. Seems Reuters is making a big story out of a few rare examples, but some people apparently really didn't like that they didn't get their absentee ballots.

NYC Underground Comedy Fest, October
Last month, we reported on New York City Mayor Bloomberg's press conference about a new New York Comedy Festival. At the time, Andras noted that he wasn't able to find a web site for the event. In a new comment on that entry, George Sarris says, "The reason you haven't found a website for The NY Comedy Festival is because it doesn't exist ... lol."
Sarris, meanwhile, is eager to point out that his event, The NYC Underground Comedy Festival, is not only "the original" such festival, but it does have a web site, a very good one, I might add. Look for it this October.
Rest assured, BizNetTravel will be happy to arrange package tours for out-of-town visitors for both festivals, and we'll laugh all the way to the bank. (Ba-da...da!)

New York Announces New Comedy Festival
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomber tries his hand at stand-up comedy
during the press conference. Consensus: Don't quit your day job
The comedy club Caroline's on Broadway and tourism promotions non-profit NYC & Company announced yesterday the first annual New York Comedy Festival, a week-long series of performances by top national comedians at theatres and clubs around the city, this November 9-13. Give us a call (888 824-9638), we'd be happy to arrange a package for out-of-towners looking to drop by for a good laugh.
So far, we haven't found a web page specifically promoting the festival, though we're sure one's on the way. Meanwhile, here is the City's official press release, and for a real laugh (no, not really), check out the online video of Bloomberg's press conference, where he tries his hand at stand-up, somehow not realizing what a tough crowd the press corp is.
