It's a good thing I bumped into LA City Council President Eric Garcetti at the VIP Reception who was able to take pics, Twitter & FB effortlessly because I was a nervous wreck.
Tweetmade me very popular, as Eric has a lot of fans and followers:>
Wilshire & Washington followed him, too, and posted this pic Eric took. . .. . .which looked very similar to a pic I tookbut not nearly as clearMore blurry pictures
here.Thanks to Eric Garcetti, I got great seats at both the reception and at the speech. . .as well as a hug from the President and a picture with Governor Gray Davis.
