Still Alive 

I haven't posted anything yet this month, so I figure I should at least get something up here. So, here's a quick catch-up post.

At the beginning of the month I spent a three-day weekend visiting Los Angeles to meet my new nephew (Nicholas Michael Milbauer) and his great parents, as well as some old friends around my 30-year high school reunion. Everything went great. Here's newborn Nick in his "Thinker" pose:

A Reasonable Baby

He's perfect.

As for politics, not much has changed. Most participants act like members of a tribe who are willing to mischaracterize their goals and those of their opponents in order to "win" the battle. We're likely to get some kind of health care bill, but it will probably do much more harm than good. Wonderful.
