A student of mine (I am not sure if he will use his real name so I won’t blow his cover) just emailed me from Denver about the convention and I was like, “DUDE! Please blog!!” So hopefully he will — a tantilizing tidbit — his first post is about bird porn.
Second, I saw Koolaid yesterday — he has been in training and isolated from computers but will be blogging once he gets to Afghanistan. Stories of training were very interesting. Also, sometime I will post about how people gravitate toward someone in uniform (he has no other clothes and so we were in the Nev and he was in his uniform — cammo style and its weird how people respond.)
Third, i am going to blog about Hilary’s speech. Short version — I had a major breakthrough in feeling empathy for her. Yes I am still mad at her and if the PUMAs cost us the election I will return to my previously embittered state, but last night I just felt proud of her and lots of empathy for someone who was so close to a life dream and not able to pull it off.
