According to CSPAN, we are.

This sometimes changes at the last minute. Check back here for any updates.

Thanks dinasour for the ping...I guess CSPAN2 is right since the Senate have their party caucus lunches on Tuesday...I was wondering if that was going to happen because of the immigration debate and pending cloture votes, but I'll check there....

No FR seemed to be down. I was in panic too. I found out about the briefing at like 9:30 and couldn't tell anybody.

Looking at the Forum post times, there is a gap between about 7:43 and 11ish EDT. So I think the entire site was down.

I know...I was getting a little concerned myself. Missing a Brian and the Judge thread: no big deal. Missing a Laura thread, not good, but not a big deal. Missing a TONY Thread? That's PRICELESS!

Especially easier to miss "Brian & the Judge" with Brian out in Hollywierd leaving the Judge to run the show aground.

Thank you, Dina. Not only for this ping but for fixing the Free Republic site! How did you do that! 8 )

I'll be curious to see if the national concern over immigration will be passionately present at the briefing or dealt with like just another issue.

Off for coffee, back soon.

lol Too true.

And it's not like you can actually get anything done, checking to see every two minutes if FR is up yet.

And it's way too early to drink to forget! =:-0

Whoever's running our company's external network, must have been concerned about the velocity of 'tries' to an invalid server.

That would be a cute graphic, or politcal cartoon.

Title: "Tony Snow's gaggle", with everyones head on the body of a gosling.

Was it me or was FR down all morning???

I thought it was my satellite connection. I had disconnected and reconnected my wires and repaired my connection several times and was about to call my ISP when I realized that FR was the only site down. I couldn't figure out why the upstairs computer which shares the connection was online and my computer wasn't.

I'm not addicted to FR. Noooo, not me.

I have C-Span 2 on, but you never know with C-Span, so if someone spots the briefing elsewhere, please let us know. In the meantime, I can watch our incredible military on patrol in Balad.
