I’ve just posted the transcript of my interview with Chicago mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun over at Bilerico.com at a post titled Chicago Mayoral Candidate and LGBT Ally, Carol Moseley Braun. I was excited to interview the former US Senator and Ambassador to New Zealand for many reasons–not the least of which was to sit on her couch and browse her incredible collect of photos from her long life in public service.
Miles Davis had signed a painting in her living room. Miles Davis. She hummed Miles Davis while she poured tea for everyone in the room. It was like a dream.


  1. Michael J. Wilson says:

    So glad that you had this opportunity, live in the moment, but stay grounded. There will be many more opportunities in the future for you to meet/interview the famous and the powerful, but in time, you will also be famous and powerful. Some little kid will think, THIS IS PHIL REESE, and you will to assure them that you, like others, in the old phrase, put your pants on one leg at a time.

  2. Thanks, Michael! My good friend Eric (pictured) and I have been joking all week long with our other friends about being so important now. Whenever someone makes a dirty or crass statement one of us will say “You can’t talk like that in front of ME now, I’m so super-classy!” Its fun!
