I have basked in the glow of Rachel Madow

And lived to tell the tale! I just returned home from a wild 27 hour journey to San Francisco and back (14 hours of driving total) in order to attend Rachel Maddow's book release event at the City Arts & Lectures theater. The ticket included a copy of the book Blowout and I am excited to read it. The event was completely sold out on the night she announced it. I was very lucky to buy my tickets immediately so I only had to pay $59. The guys sitting behind me paid $400 each!

Anyway, she spoke for a few minutes and then read an exerpt from the book. The crowd was enthusiastic (massive understatement!) and then she was interviewed by Dan Pfeiffer (President Obama's Communications Director). It was all so funny and fabulous - like having my own personal Rachel Maddow Show without any commercials. It was ALL A-block! And she left us (as she always does) laughing, better educated, and hopeful.

The audio of the event will be posted on the City Arts & Lectures podcast at some point in the near future, and it will be offered on KQED 88.5 FM soon. The website is cityarts.net. I will post again when I see that it is available. Be sure to listen!
