    I read that on Weds I think and was hoping for a follow up to the story. Apparently the Mayor kept the package a secret for like 8-9 years and then turned it over to the rest of the folks. It almost got thrown out a couple of times. If I can get the feed, I will watch. It sounds cool as hell.

    Did anyone else "I wonder if there is a mint condition M1911a1 in there?". LOL

    I'd like to watch. How could it be opened at two different times? Is there a typo here?

    Yes, they were just dragging it out and "celebrating" the event...they finally opened the package.

    It was basically a time capsule. A bunch of old letters & news papers from the era...I didn't see anything "spectacular" but it was most certainly cool (maybe the letters themselves will be revealed to have something to them?)

    nothing exciting *yet*

    Bunch of old letters & news paper clippings...they thumbed through it rather fast...in the weeks to come they'll probably publish the letters online...or atleast the ones that don't reveal the 2012 conspiracy contained within :rolleyes: :cool:

    I just watched it and am almost certain I saw Obama's birth certificate and Romney's tax returns in there!
