Once again, I'll be in D.C. today, the third day in the past week that I'm trying to get face-time with sources in Washington and keep pushing on IG-Gate.
This means light blogging once more, but it can't be helped. There's no substitute for shoe leather. There are limitations to what can be done via phone and e-mail.
My itinerary for the day includes a visit to the Reason Happy Hour. Yeah, roll your eyes, but you'd be amazed how important cocktail hour is to the work of a D.C. journalist. A big shindig like the Reason event brings together people from different spheres -- journalists, think-tankers, activists, Capitol Hill staffers -- so that you can make connections you wouldn't make otherwise.
Speaking of which, if anybody wants to get together Friday evening, we're planning an event in D.C. that's kind of a Smittypalooza. E-mail Smitty, if you're interested.
