Jesse Jackson and my signed copy of Green Eggs and Ham

Tonight Jesse Jackson spoke at the Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium. I’d recently seen his appearance on Saturday Night Live, so I brought my copy of Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss along with me.

After the lecture I had the chance to meet him and chat, but the best part was the look on his face when I presented him my copy of Green Eggs and Ham for an autograph. He kindly obliged with the observation that he knew that “this” was coming eventually, but said that I was the first one to ask for a signature on this particular book.

He got his second opportunity just moments later when my freshman year roommate Gary showed up with his own copy. Who knew that we thought so much alike?
