There has been so much going on in my life recently that I really haven’t gotten good opportunities to write about it. Today, as the second quarter ends, I’m making a little time to catch up on things.
This week Kim and I attended the funeral for Joe Lieberman’s mother Marcia. It was a very touching tribute to a wonderful woman. There isn’t much more that can be said, other than we should all live our lives in such a way as Marcia did.
I also drove Miranda off to summer camp. She is studying the Biology of the Senses at Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. Today she will perform her first brain surgery, dissecting a sheep’s brain. I spoke with her last night and she is very excited about it.
Friday of DemFest: Kim and I arrived in Austin around noon. We called around, trying to find places to be and food to eat. We ended up at a restaurant called Angie’s for lunch. I saw a woman wearing a Democracy for Texas pin and started up a discussion with her. It turned out that she was David Van Os’ wife. We chatted a little and as she was leaving, she stopped by with David and we talked a little more. Like Kim, David was a Dean Dozen candidate last cycle.
In the evening, he had meeting to address his supporters. Richard Morrison spoke briefly about his support for David Van Os. I had heard of Richard as the person running against Tom Delay yet I had never heard him speak. He did a great job speaking.
Now, I am down at DemFest.
Today, I received an email from my brother-in-law asking me to help him post bail as part of the MDA Lock. You can see the page here.
I think this is a neat idea to catch people's attention. Stop by, take a look, and contribute to the Muscular Dystrophy Association
The website for the book Extreme Democracy, which I have a chapter in, is also a blog.
