Measured Extravagance

09 February 2004 - 8:33 a.m.

Davidson County District 6 write-in candidate for Democratic Executive Committeewoman: Rachel Jacobs

(I'm told by the current Committeeman that she's very energetic and interested in becoming more active on local/neighborhood issues. The Committeewoman position is currently vacant, with no candidates listed on the ballot.)

Just got back from Fort Worth. Spent much of the weekend napping and part of it reading about monsters (a biography of Hendrik Willem van Loon - one of his sons observed that he couldn't have possibly participated in the Algonquin Hotel repartee because a round table wouldn't have allowed him to commandeer the head and dominate discussion).

The highlights of the weekend were a lively rehearsal dinner at Giovanni's and a lovely wedding at University Christian. As for the reception, I've not seen before that many cowboy hats in a formal setting. Pretty cool.

One year ago: " I am capable of being as annoyed with knee-jerk leftists as reactionary right-wingers. . . "
