Saw Rachel Maddow Last Night!

She is an absolute rock star! We got there early enough (in the rain - Seattle, of course) that we were in the fifth row center. THAT CLOSE to her brilliant mind. The event lasted 90 minutes and I was enthralled every single second. She is brilliant, thoughtful, self-deprecating, and funny.

We are lucky to have her wit and wisdom on our side. The crowd was 100% on her team - nobody disrupted.

Her final comments were for all of us to stay engaged, read, and connect with family and friends to keep them informed and engaged also. VOTE! And find another way to participate - be a poll worker, connect with Indivisible, get folks registered to vote.

I received a copy of her new book Prequel along with the registration for the event. I'll check in later after I've read it.
