Ari Fleischer Signs Downtown

Having not yet cracked his book (it sits on the shelf in front of me as I type), I'll probably skip this event, but for those interested, former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer will be signing books Thursday at the downtown Borders from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. His book, Taking Heat: The Presdient, the Press and My Years at the White House came out last month. Also signing will be Gov. Mitch Daniels for his small press book about the campaign trail, Notes from the Road: 16 Months of Towns, Tales and Tenderloins. From the IndyStar, and the Borders logistics people just in case, you know, you got too excited (and in case you've been living in a bubble and didn't know how these two fit together. Sometimes, I swear, this paper is edited for someone with the IQ of an ear of corn.)
Because store officials think the signing by these two authors may be well-attended, they will guarantee that only 150 customers will get books signed. Passes already are being distributed, and those holding a pass will have priority on a first-come, first-served basis Thursday morning. People who show up for the signing without a pass won't be guaranteed an autographed book, store officials say, but as many customers as possible will be accommodated.

Why would these two appear together?
Fleischer and Daniels have known each other for years. Daniels once worked at the Bush White House as budget director. Fleischer married Becki Davis, who was an assistant in Daniels' budget office.
