Caucus probably comes from Algonquin, and the link below has an excerpt from John Adams' diary about an early "Caucus Clubb."

Blue blood, blue plate special, blue chip stock (<-- That one surprised me, but after you hear it, you think, "Of course!"), and more.

I hate it when I run out of new podcasts to listen to on the weekend, but this weekend, you don't have to because I have a new show you can try: Open Room Media. In episode one, we tell the story of a woman who started a magazine in 2009--with her life savings--when the economy was in the tank and everyone said print was dead. We've been getting great feedback! Check it out!

I'm beyond excited to report that a new podcast I've been working on for ~9 months is finally live! In episode 1, we talk with two fine ladies from Edible Reno-Tahoe, who launched a print magazine in 2009--you know, when businesses were closing and everyone said print journalism was dead. Check it out, and if you like it, please click "subscribe" at iTunes.

Grammar Girl and so much more
Introduction
I'm Grammar Girl and so much more.
Bragging rights
Founder of the Quick and Dirty Tips network, creator and host of the Grammar Girl podcast. Since they call this section "bragging rights," I'll mention that I was once a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show, my first book was a New York Times bestseller, and my audiobook was nominated for an Audie award. My book "Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students" was named to the International Reading Association’s 2012 Teachers’ Choice book list.
