From the blogger society pages:
Last evening I had the distinct pleasure of joining a group of bloggers for dinner at Good Restaurant in NYC. Not just any group of bloggers, but star blogger Michael Totten, who was in town. It was indeed an honor to meet a blogger whose work I so admire.
Judith of Kesher Talk organized the gathering, with good food (the Good Restaurant is), good company and good conversation.
I finally got to meet in person Mary of Exit Zero, who kindly guest-blogged for me last year. Young Curmudgeon, who’s not blogging because of his day job, was there with his fiancee, along with Pamela, Ken, Steven, and Tony from Across the Bay. Adam Bellow, whose article resonated deeply two years ago, later dropped by.
However, it was Morgan Friedman (no, not Morgan Freeman), of Overheard in New York, who quickly won my heart by underestimating my age by a decade or two. Give the guy a new car, a fur coat . . . or maybe a new eyeglass prescription?
As it turns out, an “Overhead in NY” opportunity dropped on Morgan’s lap when a lady (or should I say a woman, since apparently she’s a radical feminist) at a nearby table came over, intrigued by our loud and animated conversation, and inquired about our group:
“We’re a group of bloggers”, someone explained.
To which she replied, “Oh, how liberal are you?”
