In Washington, With Pete Buttigieg
And getting that tax-free Maryland gas
Last week, I drove down to Washington D.C. to interview Pete Buttigieg, now the Department of Transportation secretary. You can read all about it in the new print edition of New York Magazine. Having pieces appear in print will always be special to me and I very much encourage you to pick it up.
The product of the interview itself you can see on the page. Rather than dive further into Buttigieg and his tenure at DOT, I thought I’d offer a few thoughts on writing the story and going to D.C., since some of you may be curious about what I do for a living.
This will actually be the much shorter version of a longer piece I intend to publish here about why I write. That is coming soon. In the meantime, for the paying subscribers here, I thought I’d give some other tidbits.
