I always notify my facebook friends when I write a new blog so sometimes I end up with a big, fat discussion thread there in addition to the comments here.

March 5, 2010

Just wanted to let you all know that there was nothing going on with the protestors when I arrived to pick up Megan today. Cops everywhere. Protestors nowhere.
