Sightings of political figures, media tyes, Ivy League polibloggers and other persons of interest are sent in by readers. Send yours to. In this issue: Ted Koppel, Josh Marshall, Mark Shields, Andy Card, and several notable DC Catholic folks.
•SawTed Koppelat lunch at High Noon at 19th and M. (I suppose it's not that far from ABC's studio down Connecticut.) He looked great for a 63 year-old and his bouffant putsTucker'sto shame. The one odd point is that he'smuch shorter than one would expect. His shoes have extra-large heels to give him an extra inch of stature.
•Monday afternoon,Josh Marshall(pretty sure it was him;no Princeton sweatshirt, so who knows? ). He was walking down 19th, just below Dupont Circle. Moving from the R St. Starbucks to the M St. Starbucks?
•Nationally known columnist, commentator and political punditMark Shields…in the National Press Club elevator on Thursday afternoon. He was wearing afrighteningly mismatched blazer-pant-tie combinationand looked incredibly disheveled. He was, however, very outgoing and asked how the day was treating me before our ride to the lobby level concluded. It occurs to me that he looks very much likeBarney Martin, the actor who played Jerry’s dad , Morty, onSeinfeld.
• Andrew Cardand wife getting into a Georgetown restaurant on 36th and O [Feb 20] evening. Just happened to pass by after a screening of the movie "Osama" by the Afghan Embassy at Georgetown U.
•Your Catholic "wonkette spy" got a sneak peak at the newMel Gibson'sbig fuss film . . . I spottedJoe Farrahfrom Worldnetdaily.com, andGriff Jenkins(a long timeOllie NorthandTony Snowproducer). NBC-4's entertainment guyArch Campbellwas interviewing people outside the Cineplex Odeon theater afterwards but we escaped the glare of his lens.Various MSNBC producers,as well asa POS pollster.Oh, and there wassome geeky guy(no doubt a serious movie critic) up front who actually had his laptop up and running doing the movie. [Wonkette spy also reports that he really liked the movie. And it's not anti-Semitic at all. ]
