Daily Show/Running of the Bulls

I can't post much at the moment, being at work, but here's a teaser for what's coming up later tonight. Two particularly exciting and interesting things happened on Tuesday. In the afternoon Jenn and I joined our friends Webster and MaryAlice to attend a taping of one of our favorite TV programs, The Daily Show with John Stewart. It was great.

After the taping, we went directly from the studio on 11th Avenue to our good friend Nicole Ridgway's book release party at a place called The Central Bar on East 9th Street. Her book is entitled The Running Of The Bulls: Inside the Cutthroat Race from Wharton to Wall Street. It chronicles the lives of seven students from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania as they try to get educated and employed while retaining their sanity and humanity. It's an excellent book, with rock-solid reporting and touching stories of ambition and inspiration. You can find out more by clicking here.

I'll post more on those subjects tonight after karate.

One more item of business: a big thank you to Chris Mohney of Gridskipper for posting a blurb/link about my Water Taxi Beach entry. You can see that here. The resulting bump in traffic was notable.

And have a nice Wednesday.
