Dennis K

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.

  1. Tom - this is great. My advice is to keep blogging, even when you don't feel like it. It's a great vent for me. After five years I've pretty much said it all, but I enjoy using my blog for posting clippings, quotes, etc...

    Not to sound cynical, but I realized years ago we live in a world where no one cares about anything. So when I blog, I really just do it for my own mental health.
