Seems things are delayed until Tuesday, though one would imagine that most delegates are already in place. Weather conditions Monday morning 0100 in Tampa are not too bad... it is Florida in August, after all. Winds ENE 14 kts gusts to 27, some heavy rain, humidity 95%. It should get stronger, but the storm's heading 285 at 12 knots moving it away from the peninsula, we'll see what course changes are in the offing.

Strippers look to GOP to 'make it rain' - CNN.com

Have to wonder if this little stat is valid, and if so, what are its implications, if any? Perhaps it speaks toward free enterprise. Couldn't say!

But if past conventions are any indicator, Republicans are likely to outspend Democrats heavily at topless bars and strip clubs, says Angelina Spencer. She heads the Association of Club Executives, an organization for the nation's 4,000 "gentleman's club" owners. The group talked to members in the host cities of past conventions.
"When we compared spending," Spencer notes, "the average showed Republicans spending $150 per person at an adult club, versus Democrats, who averaged $50 a person."
