9 a.m. news meeting:
Conrad, the business manager, came up to me before it started and spoke to me about a story I’m trying to complete, an interview with one of the state’s three Hispanic law firm partners who is a friend of Conrad. He said, “I spoke to Daniel and he said he’s sorry he hasn’t gotten back to you yet, but he really wants to do it. I had thought it was you dropping the ball, but he said he’s to blame.”
Nice when co-workers have faith in you!
Also, we were discussing the Republican convention and how a lot of Cubans are republicans and I said, “ Well, Republicans are pretty dreamy compared to Castro.” I got some looks, I must say.
