Governor Chet Culver must have changed his mind on how he would give his Condition of the State. Crews were out setting up the night before. They started assembling a Teleprompter. But then they took it down. Culver apparently didn't need it and didn't want it. He did use one last year, if you care.
The Gov put himself out there at one point. He's put on weight over the past few years (after losing a lot of weight on some liquid diet), and now he is promising to diet over the next 100 days to set a good image for Iowans. We, as a state, could use a little exercise. Although, Republicans argue, it's the state budget that needs a diet.
