Interesting Day

Completely by chance, had occasion today to enjoy fine, imported, hand-rolled tobacco products with the former Mayor of New York City. An intimate little group, it included this Conservative Republican, a couple of moderate Republicans, and even a Democrat or two. It was one of those happenstances that was completely unplanned, and therefore, was very casual and interesting. Just a bunch of guys sitting around a coffee table, enjoying espressos, smoking cigars, and chewing the fat. It's almost impossible to exchange cross words over cigars, and this little tete-a-tete was no exception.

Nice, accessible guy. Our disagreements on some issues to the contrary notwithstanding, I find myself sincerely hoping that his service to the Nation is not yet complete.
