On exceedingly rare occasions we divulge ever so little about our personal lives here on Calitics. It’s what makes a community a community. Plus I didn’t want anyone to send out the search parties.
So I will be away from blogging and the online world for the next week. That’s because, in between posts over the last couple years, I met a wonderful girl, and we will be getting married in her hometown of Pittsburgh on Saturday. Somehow she likes the chained-to-the-computer-and-occasionally-unresponsive type. I don’t know. But I’m pretty pleased about it, as I’m a lucky man.
After the wedding and a little “mini-moon” (a word I’ve coined for “shortened honeymoon,” how do you like it?), the wife and I will go back to Pittsburgh for the annual gathering, Netroots Nation. So seek me out there and say hello. After all, you’ll be on my honeymoon!
By the way, I should again plug the panel discussion I’m running at Netroots Nation on Saturday, August 15 called “California: How Process Creates Crisis,” in room 317 at 3:00pm. The panel features myself, Robert Cruickshank of Calitics and the Courage Campaign, Jean Ross of the California Budget Project and AD-21 legislative candidate Kai Stinchcombe. I’ve created a Facebook event for the panel, and for more information visit the Netroots Nation event site. If you’re heading to the convention, I hope you can make it.
And that’s it for me.
