Contest! And Denver!

You can win a signed copy of Laurel Snyder's middle grade debut novel, Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains, by entering the contest she's running at the Class of 2k8 blog.

The following is an unpaid political announcement, with Astaire allusion:

While I'm linking to things...Michele and Hillary and Bill and Joe may have wowed the crowd in prime time, but look what ol' Dennis can do to a bunch of empty seats at three in the afternoon. Kind of like doing it backwards in high heels. (A gratuitous Ginger Rogers reference to match yesterday's Prufrock joke.)

End of political announcement. Astaire allusion may crop up again at any time.

Wanna hear about my day? No? I don't blame you.

Ellen, I was happy to find out that Kucinich is an alumnus of the school my son is attending, Case Western. :-)

To be honest, I'm not sure I'd want Kucinich to be president. (It would certainly make life interesting...and maybe it's time to shake things up a bit.) But I am thrilled that he does what he does.
