This past Saturday evening, I went shopping at Trader Joe's, a grocery store where lots of students and local residents buy their groceries because of selection and good prices, when I saw none other than former Alberta premier Ralph Klein perusing the ailses. Dressed casually, he strolled around, hands in the pockets of his blue jeans.
I was standing in line when I saw him and the first thought that came to mind was, "What the heck is he doing here??"
This time folks, without an entourage, motorcade, security, or, say, a "I ♥
And....you know, I think it was him, especially after reading this item from the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
According to the Center's website, "Mr. Klein will be at the Institute from October 2007 - December 2007..." The Institute is located in Washington, DC on Pennsylvania Avenue.
It looks like I had yet another encounter with Washington Famous (or folks from Canada who want to be famous in Washington).
