I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Michael Connelly.  He and I have something very important in common! We are both graduates of the University of Florida, meaning we are Gators.  Anyone who has ever been a fan of college football, or any college sport, understands the bond that immediately exists between fellow graduates.  We had a lot of fun reminiscing about places on campus and shared experiences. The Scarecrow is a fantastic read and I liked the clever and timely use of social networking sites and technology as a key part in the book.
