My near-brushes with semi-greatness

This weekend, I had a couple of close encounters with WRKO. On Saturday, Howie Carr was autographing his book on the Bulger Brothers in Salem from 11-2. I showed up with my copy at 1:00, but they had already closed the line. Didn’t even get to see him, let alone get him to pose for a picture with Mr. Duckie. Shoulda got there earlier…

Then, on Sunday night, I got to chat briefly with the excellent guys at Pundit Review, on their weekly show. (Normally, I don’t miss my weekly date with Teri Hatcher et. al, but I worked late and was driving home.) They’ve had Michael Yon on several times, and put a HELL of a lot more into fighting for him when the Army hijacked one of his photos than I did — a fight that Yon won. They were discussing the Iraq War on its 3rd anniversary, and I managed to kick in my one cents on it. They were really on a tear, going after the anti-war nuts (like Cindy Sheehan), the media, and a couple moonbat callers. They also gave me an idea or two for future pieces — thanks, Kevin and Gregg.

All in all, not too bad a weekend, considering my internet is still buggy and I’m not quite over that bug that laid me out last Thursday.
