The fundraiser was spectacular. Hizhonor, Lil Eddie Murray was there politicking, which was appropriate to get folks all excited. The line to the bar for the Phoenix was long, but I ran into my ol' pal Chicago Jimmy who had a table so we got waitress service. Her name was Reese, and she knew the Terminator reference. Very bouncy, happy, while running her butt off. Good to get that sort of professional service.
By the time we left they had tapped 8 kegs of the stuff, and that was about 10 pm with hours to go! That's about $2000 I have been told but I am not gonna bet the bank on it.
I quote De Tocqueville:
The health of a democratic society may be measured by the quality of functions performed by private citizens.
In this instance, the people came together, well outside the constraints of government, to lift up our fellow citizens. Quiet rare enough in Seattle.
More to come, by popular request.
