Saturday Blogging

TRex was out late last night, and looked like it. I tried not to ask questions.

The Presidential Forum turned into a bit of a rollicking affair. Did y’all watch it? I sat with Christy and Digby and Taylor Marsh. It’s hard to know what nugget to pull out, but this time, at least, there was some give and take exchange among the candidates and some live, spontaneous disagreement over substantive issues.

I spent a lot of this morning talking with immigration coalition people, from the foundations world and from labor, about how to change the national conversation in favor of real human rights through contemporary media and the blogs. This is an organizing issue, and hopefully, it may begin to be addressed.

I’ve met a bunch of members of our community and it’s been really fun to hear people say hello, stop me as I’m walking around, and even pronounce my nickname right (“Pach” rhymes with “watch.”)

Duncan is laughing at me for having to get a post up because we’re late. He just sat down next to me and is looking, as always, sly smarter than me.

What’s on your minds this afternoon?
