This morning at 10:00 AM, 8/18/06 H.K. Edgerton. Nelson Win Bush, and I held a press conference at the Confederate Monument on Lake Eola in Orlando. Cdr. Wesley Frank provided flags and himself in uniform.
Channels 2 (NBC), 6 (CBS), 9 (ABC) and 35 (FOX) all sent camera crews and reporters.
My wife said we were really covered well on Channel 9, and that we were the Noon lead-in story. It was kind of cool seeing the trucks put up their masts and start broadcasting back to the studio. There was 50 yards of TV trucks along the street, and HK and Nelson put on their usual best for the press. The press actually ASKED us to sing Dixie for them!! In fact, they wanted it done before we even started the formal camera session.
WFTV Channel 9 has a feed of the story and a poll that we need to put out on the net so we look good:
STORY & VIDEO HERE Be sure to vote in this Poll

A GREAT DAY TO BE IN THE SOUTH!
