West Hollywood Book Fair, Sept 30, 2007

Vivacious Shantelle and I shared a booth for the 6th annual West Hollywood Book Fair and by the afternoon, we were grateful to be on the shady side of the tents! We decorated our tables with flowers, balloons, candy and bundled our books with ribbon to sell 2-for-1. Friends and patrons stopped by throughout the day and just across from our booth were political speakers, including John Dean ... in a previous life, he was connected with Nixon, implicated during the Watergate trial, served some prison time and has now written three books about our current administration, including "Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush." After being an on-line activist in the quiet privacy of my home office for several years, it was refreshing to hear people talking out loud and in person... not just on the Chris Matthews show (Do I need to get out more?)
