A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Bill Clinton presentation when he was in town. His talk was very interesting. One part of his talk that I found informative was the work that he is doing with Haiti. He heads up a non-government organization that are developing strategies to help the devastation. Part of that is trying to develop and implement systems like a mortgage system where a citizen can borrow to build a house. One of the points he made was that when he was President, decisions on this type of thing were made with consideration to the media backlash. He said that now that he's not the current President, the media doesn't really care about what he does, so decisions are made differently. Sometimes their efforts work and sometimes they don't. He was very hopeful for Haiti's new government.
Anyway, I did get my picture taken with Bill. This is a photo of my photo. No more than a few seconds of pleasantries were exchanged while we were shaking hands. I never had time to ask him if he could arrange for me to meet Oprah. I'll have to find another strategy to meet her.
