HERE'S A FIRST, and probably a last:

I was recognized on the street yesterday.

I don't believe it either, but a young man on a bicycle pedaled up to me just south of Pennsylvania Avenue as I was walking home from casting a primary-election vote and asked, "Are you the guy who does The Slot?"

I didn't get his name (yes, I have no manners), but I learned that he's a North Carolina State grad who's taking desktop-publishing classes at George Washington University in hopes of breaking into the editing field. He said he's a fan of the site. I didn't think my likeness was that prominent on the site, but obviously he saw the pictures enough to recognize me.
