I went to the Philadelphia Society meeting last week. There were some panels, some OK speeches, and some very foolish ones (some so-called conservatives can be almost willfully stupid, I must say). One of the best panels was on "Republic, Democracy, and Empire" and Mac Owens gave the best talk at the event. Read it.
Im in West Virginia for a couple of days at some interesting events at Marshall University, so Ill blog light, if any. Ben will post my podcast with David Foster on Huckleberry Finn later today. Be sure to listen to it. Good stuff.
