Update: We now hear that Sen. Webb's chat with the Chamber of Commerce will be open to the media.
This is really going to make people happy: Sen. Jim Webb is going to be in Norfolk tomorrow and Friday ... and is not going to take time to chat with voters about, say, health care reform.
He'll be behind closed doors -- closed even to the press -- at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk tomorrow afternoon to talk to about 75 members of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce. There's a "media availability" afterward so, presumably, reporters can ask if anyone asked about, say, health care reform.
On Friday (no time is even listed on the release), he's going to tour the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. The tour is closed to the press, but the senator's office will provide pictures afterward.
Also Friday -- 12:30 p.m.-- he will present the "2009 Distinguished Community Health Center Super Hero Award at the Portsmouth Community Health Center.
Sen. Webb wrote an op-ed piece that just appeared in The New York Times about his trip to Asia and, in particularly, his visit with Myanmar's reclusive and isolated leader, Senior Gen. Than Shwe.
