John Kerry made a campiagn stop in Mansfield last night (about fifteen miles from here). A reader who was there writes:
"I was at the game last nite when Kerry showed up. I was in the stadium guarding a block of seats so I didn’t go out to see him. Neither did too many others. It was an amazing lack of response. When I finally climbed to the top of the stadium to see what was going on, there were about as many staff around Kerry as there were local residents. Most of the people coming into the game were ignoring him.
This link from the paper shows Kerry giving some pointers to the Tygers. The home team went on to loose 7 to 34."
Kerry also stopped at nearby Bellville. About 2,000 people were there.
