Well, I’m back in Bamako. Arrived last Thursday night after a relatively uneventful 25-hour trip. It’s great to be back, of course, but after the excitement of publication and the “book tour,” I am feeling a bit of a letdown. A touch of post-partum depression, so to speak. Anyway, I need to come up with a new book idea to occupy my time (suggestions gratefully accepted).
Steelers owner Dan Rooney “raved” about my book, according to his personal assistant, Jan Rusnak. Rusnak e-mailed me because Rooney wanted to send Ted Doyle’s family a note of condolence and needed an address. The Steelers really are a first-class organization from top to bottom.
