A bunch of cool stuff today. I went to WGBH to watch Chris Lydon do the last show in his Whole Wide World series. This one was live. I loved it. I took pics. And then we all went out for dinner at Upstairs On The Square in Cambridge. Lots of talk about NH weblogs, and I passed around an idea I’ve been circulating via email (up till now) — drafting Philip Greenspun to run for President of the United States. As I was reading his blog this morning the thought hit me — I’d vote for him — in a second. I’d even work for him. I don’t agree with all of his ideas, some of them are downright wacky (and probably illegal) but he gets you thinking. What’s he got to lose? He’s over 35, and I guess he’s Jewish, but then so is Joe Lieberman. I mentioned this to Chris, he says he knows Lieberman (of course), but he really liked the idea of Greenspun running. Meanwhile Betsy Devine is organizing support for Howard Dean. I said to Chris I want to have a real election next time around. He looked at me, and in his British-American way said “There’s the slogan.” I guess that’s it. [Scripting News]
Hey. I’d vote for Philip Greenspun.
