Packing my Ugg boots: I head to Nebraska this morning for a news story. Will be there for three days. I can hardly contain my excitement. I'll be traveling between Lincoln, Omaha, and a few small towns in the middle of the state.
Actually, I'm sure I will enjoy the state's Midwestern hospitality (so different from the no-nonsense and indifferent attitude of many in Washington, D.C.) and some good hearty meals (thank God I like beef). Know any good running routes in Lincoln?!
