Wonkabout

"Quality, not quantity" is an epigram that's in favor with people who realize that they do not have a sufficient amount of a thing. So, in maybe related news: why, look how many famous authors and Senators from California are in DC this week, peddling everything from memoirs to barely fictionalizedromans a clefs about similarly named Senators from California!

Famous California Senator Barbara Boxer will be at Politics & Prose tonight. Apparently she has written a work of "fiction" about a second-term Democratic Senator named "Ellen Fisher" who uh, argues with an "aggressive" Vice President about national security. It is the much anticipated sequel to The Complete Personal Diary of Senator Barbara Boxer (2000-2008). 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
