And in case you missed it, here’s the official trailer for the rave which, by the way, ended with 100 people being arrested, mostly for drug offenses and drunkenness. Sometimes It Comes Down To a Matter of Minutes. Just ask the members of Guns N’ Roses, a band known for playing well into the night at places like the Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Axl Rose-fronted band is so notorious for playing past deadline that they were forced by authorities in Foxborough, Massachusetts not to play a minute past 11:15 p.m. or risk incurring the wrath of the town’s board of selectmen. Why so tough? As Selectwoman Ginny Coppola told the town’s newspaper, “This is on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. If this was a weekend, I wouldn’t have a problem with it. But it’s a work night.

Gaffes are a campaign reporter’s lifeblood, and our ultimate objective. Here’s how it works: Reporters follow the candidates around, badgering them with all manner of bizarre questions in a desperate effort to get them off their pre-rehearsed talking points. Inevitably the harassment will lead one of them — likely light-headed from inhaling the pig manure fumes at one too many Iowa county fairs — to lash out, perhaps by off-handedly calling reporters, “worse than a bunch of yapping little dogs.”.
