Playing "Hardball" with Chris Matthews

20171025 1407530During a recent luncheon hosted by the Women's Democratic Club of Montgomery County, the packed crowd of more than 175 attendees was provided the opportunity to play a little “hardball” with MSNBC's host of Hardball, Chris Matthews. Chris served as luncheon guest speaker but not to discuss the usual politics.
Rather, he was there to discuss his new book “Bobby Kennedy – A Raging Spirit.” I had the pleasure of attending and listen to Chris talk admiringly about an individual I, too, admire greatly.
Interestingly, so much of what he covered has relevance in today's politics.

ROCKVILLE – More than 100 Harry Potter fans braved the rain on the evening of July 25 to attend a midnight release party for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which officially went on sale the following day.

Local residents flocked to the Barnes and Noble bookstore along MD-355 for the midnight release.

Jonathan Gruber, a longtime fan, was one of the first in line.

“I got here at 8:10 (p.m.); drove all the way from Wheaton in the torrential downpour,” Gruber said. “I don’t know if I’ll read the whole book tonight, but I’m definitely going to start it.”
