Kucinich is in town, i heard by email, heading up a hearing on foreclosure. i jumped on my bike & rode over. went thru capital security, got in the elevator for the 4th floor, walked around the corner & there's dennis himself stepping in front of a camera for an interview. the hallway was full of suits. i walked up, no one else listening to the interview, stood within touching distance and when he finished i shook his hand & handed him my card with the url for a song i wrote for him during his campaign (below) that i could never seem to get to him. i told him so & he took the card, looked at it and asked how he could hear the song & i said go to that url & he said he'd do it when he gets back to washington.... andrew young then stepped up, introduced himself and took dennis away to a circle of black politicos... i tried to go into the hearing room... it was so jammed no way i could get in so with clear conscience i headed happily home toward my to-do list.
