Washington D.C. Mayor-elect Vincent Gray will be the upcoming guest in Carol Joynt’s Q & A Cafe. The interview takes place next Wednesday.

The previously scheduled guest was MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews. As Joynt explains on her blog, he has to go out of the country (Ireland, she thinks) to interview former President Bill Clinton for a documentary.
