Great. Great to meet you. By the way, I think we’re out of urinal cakes….
The Hindrocket meets Raccoon Boy and maybe RocketMan isn’t as famous as he thinks he is:
As many readers will recall, I participated in NBC’s election night coverage on Nov. 2. I was at Rockefeller Center with Ana Marie Cox and Joe Trippi, representing the blogosphere. Around 1:00 in the morning, I was walking through a deserted lunch room, returning to our set, when a man approached from the opposite direction, heading toward the men’s room. Because he was well dressed and tanned, I took him to be an on-air person. He went out of his way to walk up to me, extended his hand, and introduced himself as Brian Williams. I’d never heard of him, but I said I was John Hinderaker. He said: “I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate what you guys are doing.” I thanked him and walked on.
So: is Williams a secret admirer of bloggers like us, or not?
Or does Williams appreciate the twin-ply that he probably thought Hindrocket just loaded onto the spindle….
