Milwaukee Will Always Be My Hometown

No matter where you go in life, there is no place like home. I write this at the legendary "Miss Katie's Diner" at 19th and Clybourn, in my hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I was on WITI-TV Fox 6 News this morning, with anchor Nicole Koglin (Photo above). It's one of my favorite TV stations, perhaps because it was home to "Albert the Alley Cat" for so many years! The forecast is calling for four to seven inches of snow in the next day, so I am excited to be home!

Anyway, I wrote about "Miss Katie's Diner" when I was on the campaign trail last year, so I just had to come back for another great breakfast. This is a big political hangout, and I am seated not far from a cardboard cutout of Hillary Clinton.

My book tour continues in Milwaukee for another three days, then it's back to Chicago. If you are in the area, stop by O'Donoghue's Irish Pub in Elm Grove from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday for a book party and signing!

In the meantime, buy my book and help stimulate the economy. "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey with Clinton, McCain and Obama in the Making of the President 2008" is available by clicking on the book book button on the right side of this screen!

Holy Cow! The "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey..." Book Tour Arrives in Chicago

Okay, my plane landed at O'Hare Airport, and where did I head to first in Chicago? Wrigley Field, of course, with my sister Tierney. I am almost as big a baseball junkie as I am a political junkie. Standing next to the statue of one of my childhood heroes, "Mr. Cub," Ernie Banks, was a thrill!

The "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey..." book tour will have a book discussion and signing Tuesday night here at "uncommonground"-wrigleyville! The address is 3800 N. Clark, between 4 and 7 p.m., so come for some good food, drink and political chatter!

Friday morning I will be on the Fox 6 Morning News on WITI-TV in Milwaukee at about 7:15 with anchor Mark Concannon. More updates throughout the book tour, so check back often!
