10 Steps To Perfection

Step 1: Take public transportation to Harry's Bar at 436 11th Street.

Step 2: Settle into the bar area no later than 5:45pm.

Step 3: Order a pitcher of YingLing and a shot of Makers. Keep them coming.

Step 4: At 7:15pm, leave Harry's and walk three block to the National Museum of Natural History's Constitution Avenue entrance. Go inside.

Step 5: Take the escalator to the IMAX theatre on the second floor.

Step 6: Buy two tickets to U2 3D. Accept your 3D glasses from sales clerk.

Step 7: Walk into the IMAX theatre. Sit up near the back.

Step 8: It's now about 7:44pm. Take a deep breath.

Step 9: Take another deep breath.

Step 10: At 7:45 watch closely as four guys & a couple of musical instruments sort it all out for 80 minutes in front of 100,000 people in a soccer stadium in South America. In 3D. On a IMAX screen. For the bargain basement price of twelve bucks.

Don't forget to clap your hands and stomp your feet.

The New New Obama Press Coverage: "The More You See The Less You Know"

Obama Mania is under assault by a good chunk of the Gang of 500 this morning.

Noted: "Bandwagon wannabes", sniff the local Chicago press corps, Columbia Journalism Review, Harris/Vanderhei, Charlie Gibson, Ambinder, Halperin and Brooks.

In any event, all we can think about is the Obama rally last year where the Senator officially launched his campaign for President. And he took the stage to U2's City of Blinding Lights.

Noted: Yeah, that takes some big balls.

Anyway, the first line of that U2 song: "The more you see the less you know."
