No post to speak of today, because I just got to work...and I'm way behind. I was with Newark Mayor Cory Booker all day, taping a segment that will air later this week. I think a lot of my fellow New Jerseyans (I was raised 18 miles due south of the City) regard Newark with an odd combination of hope and resignation. Mayor Booker is a maniacal booster of the City.
The Mayor was kind enough to tweet about our lunch afterward. He's an interesting politician, which I hope our segment will make clear. For the record (since he opened the door by tweeting), his lunch consisted of: a huge plate of egg whites scrambled, a salad of lettuce and broccoli topped with fried onions. I had a cheeseburger, fries and cole slaw and two cokes. He's a vegetarian. I, clearly, am not. There you have it. I'm afraid that's all I've got!
We hope you can join us tonight.
