I woke up this morning, and suddenly had a thought: If it’s a slow news day, local stations will be at the church today. It would make some juicy sound bites to get some of the congregation commenting on the memorial service.
Then I remembered there’s a big football game just over in Tampa, and it’s cold in Florida this week. Both of those are pretty big stories. We were probably in the clear. Even so, I gave instructions to our security people to be alert. No one showed up.
But we did get a call, and request for someone to talk on camera, which we declined.
