Cheers to the Irish in Chicago on My "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey" Book Tour

(Chicago, Illinois)

I am having a great time in Chicago on my book tour promoting "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey with Clinton, McCain and Obama in the Making of the President 2008."

That photo above is of the historic Old Saint Patrick's Church. It is the only brick structure west of the Chicago River to have survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

My dad grew up a Chicago Irishman. Old Saint Pat's made me think of my son Patrick Corrigan Curtis; my old neighbor Patrick Baker (whom we lost in 1972); my dear friend Patrick Pendergast, who came to my Milwaukee book signing on Sunday; Patrick O'Donoghue, who bartended the great event at his family's bar and restaurant; and Patrick Pugliese, my fellow University of Florida Gator whom I'll see in Washington, D,C., Wednesday. I could go on and on with all my friends named Patrick. Cheers to them as we near the end of March, the month of St. Patrick's Day!

I ask your prayers for Patrick Byrne, a neighbor from Elm Grove, who is battling cancer at the all-too-young age of 46. May God Bless him and his family, who are among my dearest and oldest friends.

We'll toast all the Irish (real or honorary) tomorrow night at uncommon ground - wrigleyville, 3800 N. Clark (at Grace), from 4 to 7 p.m. for my book signing party! Please come if you are in the Windy City!
