So tonight I went downtown to the annual AFL-CIO Labor Day Fish Fry to cover it in my duties as a political reporter, always a fun event provided you like Democratic politicians and fried fish. Fortunately, I'm pretty partial to both.
But damn, my ability to connect with the common working man has its limits. I know those union guys are all about keepin' it real and blue-collar, but does the beer selection always have to be a choice between Miller Lite and Miller High Life? C'mon, throw us beer snobs a bone – I don't expect a Belgian tripel or anything, but could we at least get a keg of Shiner Bock?
