Had a great time in New Orleans (despite the heat and humidity). Allyson had a lot of fun catching up with old friends and I enjoyed making some new ones. Now that we're back in Rome, Allyson is hard at work getting ready for next week's G8 Summit, which the boss is attending. (This boss, not this one.) Meanwhile, the book is excerpted in the latest issue of The Pennsylvania Gazette, the alumni magazine of the University of Pennsylvania (where I earned my degree in folklore). Click here to read it, if you are so inclined. And my interview with Bob Edwards was rebroadcast on the weekend version of his show last weekend. (Click here for information on how to listen to it.) Looking forward to a big Fourth of July party tomorrow night!
