  1. Three things I’ll never forget about this day:

    1. Being glad I went nowhere near downtown.
    2. Bush calling the Iron Range the “Iron Ridge.”
    3. Bush throwing his arms up in the air to wave at the crowd after an hourlong speech, revealing that the pits of his shirt were soaked with sweat.
