Rock the Vote

October 30, 2008

Hi everyone-

Its been a whirlwind week…a new city every day or so.  SF, LA, NOLA, NY, CHI…its been great to see so many of you and to hear all of your responses to ‘Stirring the Pot’ and ‘Dinner at My Place.’

I’m on my way home today to spend Halloween with the family.  It’s Dorothy’s first and Hayden is an old pro having aced last year’s costume contest.  I can’t wait to see if he really gets it this time.

Speaking of Hayden, he wanted to remind you all to get out there and vote on the 4th. It’s our duty to do so and no matter where you sit in the political spectrum, just make sure you get out there and do your part.
