A professional photog snapped a shot of me and Ronald - with his shoes big and floppy. I need to get a copy!
We had a clown-to-clown rapport. Who could ask for anything more?
I also got to meet my congressman, Dan Lipinski, who ran quite a bit faster than me. He won his own age group. He seemed... perfectly normal. It's always a shock when an elected official comes across that way. Usually they seem to me like they're acting a bit.
I suppose it could be a really good act, but I felt that's how he was in fact.
