Back to normal

We are back from the National Review Post Election Cruise and I have about 300 photos to go through and upload to

It was a wonderful trip. Meeting so many National Review writers and editors along with all the other folks who attended was just great.

And yeah, we have been home a few days, but Wendy left Kansas today to go to Colorado, so there was some hanging out to do.

Our friend and Castle Argghhh! Denizen, Ry, really helped Wendy out while we were on the cruise. He got more done in a week than I normally get done in ... oh ... umm.... a year.

Ry drove home on Monday and interviewed for a job and got it!

Oh, darn.

I have to go - later.

Wanted to say that it was a pleasure to meet you on the cruise. I met a lot of good people, but was startled at the ignorance of the coast people about agriculture and Kansas. I guess I should have expected that because they don't call this fly over country for nothing. I did learn that cows have the prettiest brown eyes, which I confirmed upon my return. It's too bad we slaughter them for meat. I also learned from Kate Obiern and her buddy that Kansas has a crazy governor, our educational system is based on creationism, and the plans for expanding Cessna aircraft was a small drop in a bucket. Anyway, Steyn, Goldberg, Toomey, VDH, and West were outstanding and overall a very enjoyable experience.

Snerk on our educational system. Our son is a product of it and he's not wandering around thumping his bible.

I missed the Cessna discussion. But yes, Kate and April both have a very Beltway-centric view of the world!

All in all, as a percentage of population, I think Kansas was quite possibly one of the most-represented states present...

Sounds like you had a great time! Good luck on the job interview.
