A few days ago, I was getting in my car for the commute to the suburbs and happened to look up to see a man walking down the sidewalk toward me. He looked vaguely familiar in an unfamiliar way, especially since he was wearing sunglasses.
It took me a couple of seconds, but I realized it was new Borderstanian Kal Penn on his way to work at The White House. The blue suit and backpack were pure DC, but Penn’s saunter and large, aviator-style sunglasses were total California.
A neighbor reports that she saw Penn a few days prior to my siting, but she didn’t say hello; she was walking her dog and was in the process of picking up dog doo.
