interesting visitor to Happy Valley

Valerie Wilson, née Plame, Penn State alumnae and outed CIA undercover agent just visited

she was on my flight (sorry about the kids singing so loudly) and was met by a very very high ranking university official for a dinner and, I gather, a quick basketball game from the box (wot PSU beat Illinois, in basketball?)

I guess the political landscape really is tilting

I hope Penn State will now go and do the decent thing

least we can do

The most famous person I was on the same flight as was Bill Cowher (maybe) when I was coming back from helping on an observing run in 2003.

I was on a flight with Jesse Jackson once, arriving in Paris. He didn't have to wait in the international arrivals line with me, though.
