On The Road

The past week has been both busy and hazy (thanks to a first cold of autumn '09). Here's a little round-up:

Last Friday morning, we had a very enjoyable "bloggers breakfast" at The Flame diner on 9th Avenue at 58th Street. Here's a shot of yours truly with Mike and Fran:

Had it not been for all of the travel and cold medicine, I would have blogged about the G-20 in Pittsburgh this week.

Yesterday's New York Times had an article about how the summit is a mixed blessing for the Steel City.
