"Cheesehead" Politics Was Key in the "Age of Obama" Book Tour

In the 2008 Presidential election, there were eleven so-called "battleground" states. Wisconsin was one of them, and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was a big factor in Barack Obama's eventually winning the "cheese state."

We discussed this during my "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey..." book tour. Click on the link below for a great interview on WTMJ-TV's "Morning Blend" program.


Believe it or not, I had never visited the famed "Mars Cheese Castle" on I-94 in Kenosha, despite all the years I lived here. That all changed on this book tour, as you can see in the photo above. The "Mars Cheese Castle" was recently featured on the Food Network, www.FoodNetwork.com. They had free samples of a smoked salmon with dill cheese that were absolutely delicious!

Onward! The "Age of Obama" book tour arrives Wednesday, April 1, in Washington, D.C. It's also my niece's birthday. Happy #23, Erin Dougherty Curtis!

"Ghost" Appears at Mark Curtis Book Signing in Chicago

You just never know who will drop in on the "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey..." book-signing tour. Tonight it was NFL Hall of Famer, Dave "The Ghost" Casper, who was an All-American at Notre Dame and owns a Super Bowl ring from his days with the Oakland Raiders.

Dave works as an insurance agent and financial adviser for Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company in Chicago, but still lives near me in the East Bay area of San Francisco.
Anyway, if you have insurance and financial needs, contact Dave Casper at NML in Chicago through the web site at www.nmfn.com.

It was a GREAT book signing party at "uncommon ground" - wrigleyville. The food was wonderful, so visit them just blocks from Wrigley Field. We had a good crowd, talked politics and sold a bunch of books! www.uncommonground.com

My sister Tierney set up the party, and we were joined by many of her good friends along with our lifelong friend, Stacey Cibulka. What a great party!

Tomorrow it's on to Washington, D.C. We have a 6 p.m. book signing and discussion at Barnes & Noble, 555 12th Street NW. See you there as the book tour marches on!
