I am accumulating business cards and notes galore, which will fuel my blogging after the forum concludes for quite some time. But it seems all I have time to actually post during the forum is the occasional photo. This one is from last night, when I was honored and privileged to meet Representative Keith Ellison, the first muslim-American elected to Congress. Rep Ellison is an incredibly warm person, effusive and immediately enthusiastic when I told him i was an american Muslim blogger, and insisted on taking a photo with his phone and emailing me a copy. I’m seriously humbled by his energy and sincerity.
Incidentally, Rep Ellison just totally demolished the Republican Budget on the floor of Congress today, by pointing out it doesn’t turn a surplus until 2040.
