President Obama has nominated our friend Steve Zack as one of five alternate U.S. representatives for the United Nations 68th General Assembly. The U.N. Assembly begins Tuesday! The Herald has the article here.
Stephen, as this crappy blog's alternate blogger, don't focus on the whole "alternate" label. Just go do your thing. Someone may get injured, go on a 30 day bender or check themselves into rehab and before you know it you're on the first team. After all, as Rumpole recently reminded us, the oft-used Woody observation is that showing up is 80 percent of life.
Seriously, I don't have to recite Steve's accomplishments here. We all know them. Well. And while this isn't quite as epic as being nominated as Ambassador to Singapore, its still pretty darn cool.
Go get em, Steve. Keep doing us proud.
N.B.: This is the latest I've gone into any day without a cocktail in a long, long time.
