What is Grizzly Fest? Grizzly Fest is a celebration of how far we’ve come and where we’re going as Palin supporters. It’s a call to stay involved. As Moira Crooks pointed out in her inspiring essay Pass the Salt and Turn the Lights On we may be just ordinary individuals … and we may not think we make a huge difference … but when we come together we can and will do great things.
Here’s our line-up for Saturday … You can listen live on your computer or to a recorded podcast and interact in our forums with fellow “Grizzlies.” In the comment section, please let us know what you’d like to hear from the panelists.
