About the Billy Joel Interview

My short bio:
My name is Steve Israel. I'm a Congressman and I represent New York's third Congressional District, including the communities of Huntington, North Hempstead, Queens, Oyster Bay, and Smithtown. Born and raised in Brooklyn and on Long Island, I've long loved writing and have finally published my debut novel, [THE GLOBAL WAR ON MORRIS] (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1476772231?). It is loosely based on my time in Congress, it's a political satire, and I've met the characters (Rove, Bush, Kerry, Cheney, Obama), heard the conversations, and seen the plot twists firsthand. Ask me anything!

EDIT: Hey everyone, really enjoyed the questions. Hope you will grab your copy of the Global War on Morris to see how Washington really works. It will make you laugh...and maybe cry. As Rona Feldstein would say,'it's time for a little nosh.'
