Making the News

I was working from home this morning. Around 11 or so, just as I was getting off the phone with my company's IT support folks (Windows having locked me out of my account again; it happens a lot right after a required-every-90-days password change), I got a call. I recognized the voice. He introduced himself: "This is Mike Sugarman. I'm a reporter for CBS-5...."
"I know who you are," I said, "I recognize your voice from KCBS radio." Sugarman does "About the Bay" features for KCBS as well as reporting for their sister television station, KPIX channel 5

There is of course a certain irony that this was a story about saving fuel and I ended up making an extra 50-mile trip to San Mateo to accommodate filming it, but it was an unusual circumstance, and Wednesday isn't my usual work-from-home day anyway. I am still pretty happy at how things seemed to turn out. I will post here when the story eventually airs on KPIX, and it should be available on their web site after it airs as well.
I do wish I'd had an opportunity to wash my van, though. The right side is covered with the results of parking under a tree full of birds at BayCon, and I'd not gotten around to cleaning it off.Update, 21:10:
