After last weekend's dust up in his apartment, Rahm and I have begun seeing the resident White House counselor together. Dr. Krinsky works out of the West Wing and was Oprah's gift to the Big Guy for his inauguration. It's not like Rahm and I think we're a couple or anything, but we just feel that for the good of the Administration, we need to clear the air and work some things out.
It was a pretty emotional first session. I talked about growing up poor in Silicon Valley, when my parents were itinerant scrollers on the Tony Robbins amphitheater circuit. Rahm wouldn't talk about his childhood.
I talked about meeting Big O in 1983 on the Upper West Side when we were both at Columbia, and how we couldn't afford an apartment with heating. Rahm wouldn't talk about his first O meeting. Finally, I talked about the feeling of abandonment I've experienced not being able to get to my room up in the White House residence.
Rahm surprised me and actually apologized for contributing to those feelings. Then he called and had my car towed from the White House parking lot.
