Off to Knoxville & the opening of the World Fair. Also to meet Nancy who has been gone since Mon. I’ve been lonesome. Spoke at the fair opening ceremonies—well received by a tremendous crowd. Appeared briefly at a fundraiser for Robin Beard, Congressman running for U.S. Sen. Then back to the fair to speak at the opening of the U.S. Pavilion. We were presented with 2 passes worth $120. A small boy named Omar had raised the $120 to buy them by asking people for a penny each and getting them to sign a book which he also presented to us—12,000 people. Helicoptered up into the foothills to Sen. Baker’s place. Had a nice afternoon & very informal BBQ dinner with them & their friends & neighbors & his daughter Cissy who is running for Congress. I think she’ll make it—I hope so. Joy and Howard are gracious & comfortable hosts. We overnighted there.
