We're feeling a bit more motivated about next Tuesday's mega-event, the Get Motivated session taking place in Spokane.

It's so big, event organizers have added seating in the Convention Center, so that anyone who can't or doesn't want to sit in the Spokane Arena has a second choice.

We also heard this week that the event DOES include live appearances. None of the seven headliners will appear by satellite, as we earlier feared. A Get Motivated spokesman noted that in some instances, on late notice, a headliner may have to appear by satellite.

But Rudy Giuliani, Gen. Colin Powell, Robert Schuller and others will be in Spokane for the event. Live, not by remote feed, we were told.

Based on past shows, you can expect Powell and Giuliani to appear early in the day, then bug out and head wherever they're going next.
