The diner consisted of a conversation between Andrew, Mark and Anne, all of whom are residents of St. Louis. Pictured above is Andrew, who was celebrating his nineteenth birthday yesterday with us. Andrew is the son of our good friends Bob and Noreen, former St. Louis residents. They now live in Rochester, New York. Andrew is attending Fontbonne University for his first semester. He and Dave make up the St. Louis/Rochester student exchange program. Andrew is studying advertising. He seems to really like school. His father, Bob will be in town on Thursday. I plan on taking that day off to hang out with them.
I am no longer just a mere blogger folks, I am now a political analyst or pundit if you will. Yesterday’s post was about the Tour of Missouri bike race and how it has become an issue in this election year’s race for Lieutenant Governor. Today a Team Kaldis teammate, Sandi, emailed me a response she had gotten from the Sam Page (D) campaign. In the emailed response, Bret Bender, the Communications Director for Sam Page tried to answer her question about Sam Page’s position on the Tour of Missouri by refering her to this website. I don’t think he knew we knew each other. She forward me the email. Thank you, Sandi! You’ve made my day.
Fact follows fiction, Wednesday’s edition of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, asked the question what qualifies a person to be a political analyst. This question is posed seven minutes into the show, or right after the first comercial break. Check it out. As Jon puts it my naivety has been converted to gravitas. Or as he better put it, “Who the F@#k is That Guy?” 😉
