Meeting Daniel Schorr somewhat by accident

I had signed up to attend Daniel Schorr’s lecture yesterday evening at the Cosmos Club. There was a reception and in typical fashion, my wife and I picked a table in the very back of the Powell lounge to enjoy some cheese and wine before the lecture. A few minutes after sitting down, an elderly gentleman sat down at our table and introduced himself as Dan Schorr. And so we began to talk about the current financial crisis, foreign policy and Mr. Schorr’s NPR reports. He is really a remarkable journalist–of the old Edward R. Murrow school.

Only in Washington.
