Astonishing to realize it’s September 15. The last few days have flown by now that Congress is back. I covered a couple different hearings last week as well as wrote a more forward-looking big story about how fast the Senate will advance the Obama administration’s two nominees for the FCC as well as the one nominee for the FTC. The Senate Commerce Committee will be holding a hearing on two of those people on Wednesday, and I’ll be there for that.
And it’s a full schedule otherwise. San Francisco next month, New York the month after. I spent most of yesterday out in Virginia, where I visited the Potomac Point Vineyards for the first time for a nice wine tasting and a dessert. Gorgeous site. There was a wedding happening there when I first arrived.
Other home news—it looks like I’ll be covering the show Homeland on a weekly basis for The Week. Bring on the emotion, Claire Danes.
