I’m around, other than meetings mid-day and mid-afternoon. (How to contact me)

As happens when an issue one works on takes over the national news, the border situation is occupying me all day long. I realized I had to get a good night’s sleep yesterday, when in a Spanish interview it took me 3 seconds to remember the verb “expulsar“—and I did sleep well.

Today I’m briefing 2 groups of congressional staff, but otherwise have no pre-planned meetings and should be reachable as I catch up my news database and my e-mail and other communications inboxes. I’d also like to carve out some time to write, but am not sure that will happen.
