Himes to walk across the 4th CD

This Saturday Democratic candidate for Congress Jim Himes will spend the day walking across the 4th District, starting at 7AM in Greenwich and finishing up in Bridgeport at 9:30PM. Residents along the 22-mile path are encouraged to meet and talk to Jim at one of the many stops he'll make, or they can join in the walk for any part of it.

This sounds like it'll be a really fun day, and I truly wish I didn't have other important plans (OK, I'm going sailing) or I'd come along with my camera and document the walk on video.

Plus, I can probably use the exercise, rather than wasting the day sitting lazily on my boat, moving the tiller with my foot as I lean back comfortably while sipping some kind of exotic tropical drink with an umbrella in it...but that's my cross to bear, and somehow I'll manage to get through it.

It's good to see that J. Himes is a very practical, grounded man. Every stop on his tour offers food of some kind. This will make his supporters happy and, more importantly, please the press. Barbecue works for Old John, good deli should work for Jim.
