If you've got anything you want to share with Congressman Allen West, he announced two town hall events yesterday: Today's event is at Deerfield Beach City Hall from 3 to 5 p.m., and Friday's is up in West Palm Beach, at the First Baptist Church at 1101 S. Flagler Drive, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Sorry, people with day jobs that aren't at either of those locations, but you don't get to go.

One never knows how these things will turn out -- yesterday, in fact, was the one-year anniversary of West telling a Muslim man at one of his town halls that "you attacked us." Another town hall last year had more than 500 attendees, including a small contingent of loud critics -- the Sun-Sentinel has a live blog of that event if you're curious about the kind of atmosphere at these things (hint: not friendly).

See you there.
