Todays Norman Transcript has a frontpage headline story about former President Carter coming to Norman to speak at the midwest regional meeting of the New Baptist Covenant. The paper says Carter will be speaking to more than 15,000.
For the record, as our press releases and website reveal, Carter spoke to more than 15,000 people in Atlanta in January 2008. In Norman, we would be happy to have him speaking to 1,500. Maximum seating at Norman's Convention Center is only around 2,500.
