  1. Susan

    I am looking for a Jeff Bailey that lived in Saratoga and would be about 60 years old.. You?..

  2. Rockie

    I am looking for a Jefferson Bailey that is interested in resuscitating Neil Night for John’s 40th birthday party in Brooklyn. Is that you?

    • Jefferson

      It’s better to revive Neil Night, than to fade away.

    yeh Jefferson, a suggestion you add a photo to your site – then you won’t get “are you the Jefferson Bailey” who…. was stuck in the elevator with me in Baton Rouge last year (OK I need some coffee to start the day). But seriously, it will help us find you (networking!!) at conferences :-)

  4. Jefferson

    But the “are you the Jefferson Bailey” questions are some of my favorite (and only) blog comments. Plus, I like to daydream about what life would be like if I were that 60-year old in Sarasota. Would I be happy? Sad? Would I think it’s too cold in here? Too hot? And why don’t my grandkids call anymore? Ah, the possibilities…

    What’s “networking”?
