I had quite the drive today, getting on the wrong freeway in Illinois and getting pulled over for driving 3-4 miles an hour above the speed limit (more on that in my next post).
The real highlight of the evening was a dinner with some of our Chicago readers. Great guys all. And particularly thanks to one reader for helping guide me through Windy City traffic. He told me the Mapquest directions were not the best way to get here. As a result, I also got to drive through a beautiful section of downtown–wish I had more time to admire its architecture.
Do want to report something I learned from this reader. While serving in the Illinois Senate and representing Illinois in the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama never marched in the Gay Pride Parade. Nor has the city’s Democratic Mayor Richard M. Daley.
Apparently, Mr. Obama was in town during the 2008 Gay Pride parade, but was getting a hair cut at the time.
