A Mention in the Washington Post


In his column today, the always readable (and often insightful) Washington Post Metro columnist John Kelly included an excerpt from an e-mail I sent him concerning his 9/24 column “Surviving Tough Economic Times? Readers Say, Bring It!”

You can read his complete article here. The following is a direct quote from the paper {including a quote from me [as well me quoting a customer (is this a ‘tertiary quote’?)]}...

And what a coincidence: Pat has just opened a bookstore in Winchester, Va., called Blue Plate Books. Wrote Pat: "This morning I was chatting with a customer about the latest Washington/Wall Street money drama. 'What should we be doing?' I asked. His opinion was this: 'I'll take this sci-fi novel. Now's a good time to bury your head in a book.' "
