If any of my friends on here are in the Dc area on Sept. 17th, I was invited to Mc an event at the Us Capital in front of our Senators and Us Representatives, on the importance of affordable preschool education in our country. If you're in the area, come on out, and let's do lunch afterwards.

Eric; I would suggest you focus on the importance of senate funding for magicians to subsidize affordable children's birthday parties in our country; you represent us as a Magician's lobbyist.

Haha, and any extra funds could go towards us all having our own party bus, with our logo on it

Exactly, business purposes; I actually take a tax deduction and vehicle deprecation for driving the bus around town.

In California buses are regulated by the California Highway Patrol and my bus is registered as the "HOWIE DIDDOT MAGIC BUS"

Eric - Numbers, figures and studies that show the importance of child development through exposure to the arts, is your subject matter for the day.

I've heard about studies that correlate how much better students perform in math classes if they've been exposed to music appreciation. Quote a few of those.

The appearance may be be about finding published studies that quantify improvements in critical thinking and learning - because students are exposed to the arts -all arts.

I just appeared as an Expert Witness in a hearing (I offered Expert opinions). To be accepted as an expert I had to show academic knowledge and achievement in the form of teaching, publishing and training of others in the subject I was speaking on. (Magic related).

Eric, you have that under your belt but I would still ask a thousand questions about what content they are in need of.
You may also need to provide a resume or a CV and provide 50 copies in advance. Pictures of laughing kids won't impress them as much as how much money spent today will contribute to the success of the kids later. (Cost-benefit analysis given by a man who has practical experience and direct knowledge).

Again, I don't know exactly what they need you for but I know that you will ask the right questions and prepare accordingly.

Good for you.

Or maybe not
If they just want you to MC only. Are you inviting any children from a local school to be in the audience?

I really have no idea what you're doing, just throwing up, ideas.

Hey Jay, great letter. Thanks, man. I'm having a conference call next week with some people, but I'm not supposed to be Barbara Walters on stage, or Anderson Cooper, asking questions, etc. 100's of preschoolers will be there, and the thinking behind asking me to Mc, is that now the kids won't be tugging on their mom's leg to leave. For instance right after a senator talks, then I do a couple antics on stage, before introducing the next person.

Lol

You HAVE to get that on film.

I was hired once for a wine and cheese party in Laguna Beach. What they didn't tell me was that I would do a trick then be rudely interrupted by a blow hard and his lesson on wine.

I can only imagine the reactions of the kids to the senators! (But I am in no way calling them blow hards).

Eric, if you have the time, tell the President I said "Hi."

I still can't believe it Eric. Popular as you are, I had pleasure to meet you in person. Please don't forget about me.

Congratulations Eric!

I know you will be a big hit and I hope you can put some video of the event on your website.

I have to assume I will get some clips to put up, at least I hope. I might use the crying baby. I'm having a ball with it. Thanks Mike and Dynamike. Jay, that's hysterical, brother.
