A Little Bit Of Bernie: I was able to get out of Dodge in time to avoid the brunt of Hurricane Isabel today. Speaking of gunslingers, one of the passengers on the 10 am Amtrak Metroliner from D.C. to NYC was former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who just returned from a stint helping to establish rule of law in Baghdad.
Barrel-chested Bernie spent much of his time on the cell phone talking in hushed tones (about top secret stuff, no doubt) while we waited to board the train. This guy oozes enough testosterone to make Mike Tyson feel like a castrato. BTW, although I couldn't be sure, I assumed Bernie was packing.
There's talk that Bernie may run for office but in this day of international terror, it was just comforting to know he was on my train.
