Media Matters and Other Matters
Last night I found myself in the living room of an elderly Georgetown couple's home for reasons too complicated to explain. Also in attendance at this salon of sorts were a few acquaintances of theirs, one erudite young Media Matters watchdog there to give a small presentation about the group's noble work, and one lovely Brunch Bird reader who shall remain nameless unless she 'fesses up. Most striking about the evening was the conversation that prefaced the official presentation, between the more senior attendees. It involved serving in World War II, working in Nairobi for the U.N., and playing poker with LBJ aboard the presidential yacht, the U.S.S. Sequoia. It was at that moment that I realized our generation has a lot of living left to do.
