According to a schedule released by the Republican National Convention 2008, Rabbi Ira Flax of Birmingham will lead the delegates in prayer on Tuesday, not Wednesday as originally reported. The retired Air Force chaplain, a Conservative rabbi, will speak on the day the convention's theme is "Reform."

As of this morning, there are reports that the McCain campaign is considering delaying the convention if Hurricane Gustav makes a direct hit on New Orleans early next week.
