In transit

I’m heading home from Seattle today after an excellent trip promoting the paperback edition of Our School, my charter school book.

My friend Jan — we go back to high school days — was my host and chauffeur. Jim Miller of Miller on Politics and Stefan Sharkansky of Sound Politics came to the University of Washington lunch and the dinner last night hosted by Matt Rosenberg of Rosenblog, Sound Politics and CrossCut. Eric Earling and Andy MacDonald, also SP bloggers, were there too as well as spouses and kids. It’s fun to meet virtual people in the flesh. Shark and I met at a San Francisco blogger bash four years ago. It must have been a good party. I can’t remember 95 percent of it, but I found photographic proof online that I was there celebrating my second blogiversary.

Matt’s father, Milt Rosenberg blogs at Milt’s Files; he interviewed me on WGN radio in Chicago when the book came out in hardcover.
