The Milton Friedman Memorial Free Lunch

I hied out to the Cato Institute in downtown D.C. at noon. They had the aforementioned Free Lunch, with a guest speaker who was kind enough to sign a few of his books.

All I had was one of his oldest ones, THE oldest in fact.

But he was so gracious to sign it, even signing it over his own photograph from 1974.

It says,

"To [Turk],
2 sweet
2 be
4 got

P.J. O'Rourke

As for the Free Lunch, I recommend the chicken and Romaine wrap. The sandwich made with focaccia (spell-check recommends "Fibonacci"!) bread was also good.

He's one of my favorite writers. I used to love his column in "Car and Driver".

I must go to one of Tam's blogmeets and shake your hand so I can be only two degrees separated from P.J. O'Rourke! In that "I shook the hand of the man who shook the hand of the man who shook the hand of John L. Sullivan" kind of way.
