Bill Maher, live and in person

Bill Maher, host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, made an in-person appearance this afternoon at A Clean Well-Lighted Place for Books in San Francisco. He did a brief Q&A with the people waiting for autographs, and then got down to the business of signing books. I gave him my "Bush's Chicken" cup as a souvenir.

Bill Maher is one of a handful of people who give me hope for the survival of America and American democracy.
