A former colleague at CNET welcomes President Obama to London this week

A former colleague of mine when I was Editor at CNET News in San Francisco, Matthew Barzun, is now the U.S. Ambassador to the UK. Here he is greeting President Obama on this week’s visit to London, with his wife Brooke. Matthew is from Louisville, Kentucky, and he introduced me to the greatest restaurant there called Jack Fry’s. I’ve been twice, once with Matthew, and another time later when I went to Louisville for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. Good going Matthew! A profile of Matthew is here.
