Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota was swinging through Bloggers' Row there, so of course we had to chat. Nice guy; very centered.
I was trying to think of some way of saying that I'm sorry that my little bit of extra monopolization of the Governor's time was an inconvenience to a couple of staffers (I know some of those people, after all) without saying I'm sorry for the monopolization itself (because I'm, well, not); but then I realized that all I had to do was just write that out. As a writing strategy, it seems... remarkably straightforward. I should try it more often.
