Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

APSA update

Ken Masugi, who was kind enough to buy me a drink yesterday, beat me to the punch, as did Scott Johnson (with links, no less).

My panel yesterday went well (I commented on two papers, one on Nietzsche, the other on Machiavelli, and was fortunate that both richly repaid my modest efforts), and I had nice chats with old friends, including Paul Stern, Carol McNamara, John Seery, the recently reunited Busch family (his wife’s presence in Newport News is real, but not yet virtual), Jerry Weinberger, Leon Craig, and John Eastby (who, if anyone in South Dakota is reading, would be happy to deliver a lecture in his home state).

Today promises to be yet another busy one, so I’d best gird my loins for the unrestrained commerce in ideas. Bye for now!

If anyone else wants to buy you a drink, tell them to do it at Bardeo, a wine bar with adjacent restaurant(Ardeo) just north of the zoo, across the bridge, on Conn Ave. Even if I’m only in DC for a day I don’t leave til I’ve had a glass at this place. The selection of wine by the glass is amazing, to say nothing of bottles. Great cheeses too. I like it so much that I now organize business dinners there. If you come to DC often you probably already know the Lebanese Taverna near the zoo; it’s overall apart from Bardeo my favourite place in DC. The Old Ebbitt Grill (sp?) is also fun; the food isn’t as good but there’s a lot of political buzz in the place.
