I had dinner with famed commenter Von Bek on the upper west side a couple of hours ago. He’s a real person, in NY on business and doesn’t talk about James Polk as much as you’d think. He is also impeccably mannered, refusing to sit until I did, telling me I look as young as I did when he last saw me 3 years ago, and not pointing and laughing when I spilled my tea all over both of us. Coincidentally, Eric ‘I hate everybody and everything’ Deamer actually had a post about Von Bek today, apologizing to him, of all things.
I haven’t written about the Saturday night blogger party, mostly because I haven’t had time to catch my breath since then. Scott, Dawn and Dorian each make mention (I like Dorian’s best, for obvious swollen-head reasons).

James Polk. Davis Polk (& Wardwell) is the law firm known for representing the Topeka Board of Education before the Supreme Court.
So, let me get this straight…you had dinner at 12 am?
Must be a New York thing. Down here, we call that breakfast.
Ugarte, funny, thanks for the correction. Can’t imagine what I was thinking when I wrote that.
Davis Polk is one of the pre-eminent white shoe law firms in the country. They’re known for a hell of a lot more than brown v. board of education.
They were outside counsel for us back when I was a corporate paralegal. Don’t know how they got in my head.
dude, so you summered at Davis – wooo for you, so did 20,000 other people and that was just the summer of 1999.
In my defense, as a card-carrying member of the “culture of death” I’m legally mandated to hate almost everything, starting with fluffy bunnies, rainbows, and pretty flowers.
Not Dawn, was your snide comment meant at me? Cause I never ’summered’ anywhere.
You are a doof.
See, that’s how you know I am referring to you, I put your name right there at the top.
