Here’s today’s contact report:
First, I had breakfast with our own Doug Ross, frequent commenter on this blog. How this meeting developed is complicated. It went sort of like this — Doug filed a comment that I did NOT publish, but meant to turn it and my reply into a separate post, until Doug complained (as a guy who has the common decency and courage to use his real name — note him holding up his picture ID — and who therefore has certain rights on this blog) that his comment hadn’t been posted, and I e-mailed him with my phone number so I could explain, and he suggested coffee instead, and next thing your know, it evolved into him meeting me at my habitual morning spot, the Capital City Club. Anyway, I learned that Doug lives out in Blythewood, he works in software, and he’s a Red Sox fan. Everything else you need to know about Doug you can find out from reading his comments on the blog. Oh, one other thing — we chatted briefly about his long-ago suggestion that we have a get-together of regular commenters sometime. Maybe that would be a good way to mark my millionth page view, which I estimate we’ll hit probably sometime in the next year. What do y’all think?
Oh, one last thing — Doug said I recently ran video of someone who Doug’s family said looked a lot like him, only younger. I’m guessing that was B.J. Boling of John McCain’s S.C. staff — don’t you think?
