I saw Al Gore today
Al Gore, winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, was in Palo Alto this morning. Thanks to a tip-off from a friend-of-a-friend, I was able to stand around with lots of press folks waiting for his arrival to the Alliance for Climate Protection, which incidentally, will receive 100 percent of the proceeds of the award. I snapped this picture of Al getting out of his care (a Mercedes E320 CID). I think I might have suffered a little elbow to the side, but it was worth it.
While hanging out waiting for Al, I had a chance to see a fellow mom I knew, talk with a nice lady about her big white dog, and talk with an employee of the Peninsula Open Space Trust about their recent acquisition. Way more exciting than an hour in the office!
