Meredith Willson’s home state gathers in local caucuses – Dubuque, Des Moines, Davenport, Marshalltown, Mason City, Keokuk, Ames, Clear Lake – tomorrow night. The contest is still up in the air (We could stand touchin’ noses for a week at a time, And never see eye-to-eye).

You really ought to give Iowa a try…
