You can bet your life the buzz that Janet Jackson would be attending the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund annual awards dinner at the Sheraton, brought out a more than average crowd of reporters and photographers! Janet couldn't make it because of health problems, but it didn't seem to damper anyone's spirits. There was an air of expectant victory that spelled out O-B-A-M-A! Someone on the red carpet pointed out to a photographer whose jacket was festooned with about 20 Obama for President buttons that he should not wear those buttons when going to vote, as he would be turned away! Hope everyone is aware of that!
