By the way, Lynne Cheney sat next to me in the Rare Books & Special Collections reading room all morning. I had a feeling it was her — then when I left I saw the dudes with shades and earpieces waiting outside. She was reading something related to James Madison. It did make me wonder if she’ll ever do something to top this.
