What a weekend!

Too late to elaborate, but let me just say that we had a great weekend. And to prove it here’s a picture of me, Joisah and Sen. Chuck Schumer!

  1. Seriously, you live a strange life my friend. I can think of a few people off the top of my head now that it’s just hilarious that you’ve met them and had a camera on hand to prove it.

  2. For Josh and Luke’s sake I should probably put out my disclaimer that I’m not the biggest Chuck Schumer fan in the world. He just happened to be at the Park Ave. Fest here in Rochester this past weekend whoring himself out to the voting public.

    The whole scene was pretty ridiculous. Be had interns holding giant signs that read “Meet Senator Chuck Schumer!” all around him. He moseyed through the crowd shaking hands and making the smallest of small talk. I’m a total dope for that sort of thing, so I had Cheryl snap a picture of us together.

    As if there were any doubt about it, the guy was a consummate politician. I looked hard but couldn’t find a soul beneath his smiling facade.

    And Luke, I know you were kidding but it got me thinking. You’re probably right, there aren’t too many C&MA pastors that would cuddle up next to a uber-liberal like Schumer for a photo op. Of course my signed placard that reads “Happy Birthday Shane! George W. Bush” is one of the main reasons I barely consider myself an “Evangelical Christian” anymore as well. 😆

    Josh, no worries about my wallet. I live in the most taxerrific state in the union. I didn’t have any cash in there to begin with!

    Yes Jim, my list of notable run ins just keeps growing. The most unbelievable and random one to this day has to be Trey Anastasio. But I have signatures and/or photos to prove others such as George W. Bush, Dave Matthews, Lucinda Williams, Donald Miller, Over the Rhine, Ken Griffey Jr., Paul Molitor, Bob Feller, Chris Chambliss, Darryl Talley, and a slew of Christian bands like Caedmon’s Call, Third Day, Jars of Clay, Bebo Norman, and Sixpence None the Richer.

    Oh, and when I was in high school I had an opportunity to meet the Prime Minister of Kuwait right after Operation Desert Storm. I was in a group called “Teenage Republicans,” or TARs, and he was at a fundraiser for State Senator Michael Nozzolio whom we were campaigning for.

  3. WHOA! You met Chuck Schumer?! Cool. I read further.. 3,606 U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq[pronounced ear-rock], less than 3,000 citizens died during 9/11 [pronounced nine-eleven]. I feel that these two numbers, that make up this one fact, should have been the nail in the coffin, for troop withdrawl to begin taking place. I feel that losing more troops, than citizens that died during the strike on America than sparked this whole thing, is proof enough, that the war on terror wasn’t worth it. It’s pretty well known that if the word was given to pull our military out right now, it could be a year before it happens. It could certainly even take longer than that, yet our “leaders” just squabble over how to run our lives, instead of focusing on ways to keep up their promises: To not put our brave troops in harm’s way, unless absolutely necessary.
