Many blogs have discussed last night’s fabulous L.A. Press Club event:
Mickey Kaus complains that none of the bloggers blogged about the event. You just need to give us some time, Mickey . . .
Quarens has a picture, where you can barely see me, off to the left.
SoCalPundit promises pictures, but hasn’t delivered — yet. (I think Hugh called him Kevin Drum! He was obviously mixing up SoCalPundit Kevin with Kevin Drum, the former CalPundit. He must have been surprised at the right-wing question that “Drum” asked.)
Flap does have pictures. The red eyes in the picture of me are due to his camera — not the wine I had. I assure you.
Mack Reed was appalled by the Times-bashing.
Kevin Roderick — who, like me, was surprised to find Hugh Hewitt inviting him to speak (but who, unlike me, wisely declined to) — has some thoughts.
Gay Patriot has a comprehensive list of people he met.
So does Cathy Seipp — who says she met me, but really didn’t, properly (which I regret — hopefully next time).
I did meet Carol Platt Liebau, who sometimes guests for Hugh Hewitt on the radio.
Justene from Calblog says her daughter was thrilled that her mom got to hear Hugh Hewitt . . . you know, the blogger.
Luke Ford has a post, though I can’t figure out how to permalink it.
Other folks I met who didn’t/couldn’t blog it — and I know I am missing some — include L.A. Times editor Bob Sipchen; the pseudonymous LAPD officer Jack Dunphy and his lovely (and equally anonymous) wife; Amy Alkon; Jill Stewart; Roger L. Simon; Mark Alan Stamaty (who does the full-page Sunday Opinion comics for the L.A. Times); Brady Westwater; and (as I mentioned last night) frequent commenter Dafydd ab Hugh and his lovely wife Sachi. Old friends not already mentioned included Justin Levine, Richard (Calblog Justene’s husband), and Marc Danziger (aka Armed Liberal from Winds of Change). And probably some others that I somehow forgot.
I got to speak with all of these people (except for Cathy Seipp). Can you tell what a great evening it was?
UPDATE: Jay Rosen wasn’t there, but has a post that touches on the event.
