I had barely entered the Sheraton Hotel when I saw JM Bell. He reports that he sat at a bloggers' table (which was my other invite) sponsored by The Utah Amicus. JM reports that the guest list at the table included:
Jason and Craig from the Sidetrack, Ryan (Republican) from For The People, Misty from Saintless and UtahForObama, Nikki from UtahForObama, Jeremy from Jeremy’s Jeremiad, and Rob’s hot mom.
I should have stopped by the table to meet some of those people.
People I actually spoke to at the luncheon were Pete Ashdown, Ralph Becker (the "doer" was also there, and looked about like JM Bell would in my ward -- like he wants to get the heck out of there), UEA's Vic Arnold, and Trisha Beck (her son was the coworker I sat with).
[UPDATED 11/30/07, 6:58 PM] JM called me on plagarism, which I have now attributed. I should also attribute that I stole the title from him as well. However, the religious-themed dig stays, as it wasn't meant to be religious-themed. *I* feel out of place in my ward most times....
