This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Any special plans?
I know a few people who are in Washington, D.C. today. My high school friend Steve Lilley, who I hung out with on election night, is going in on a bus from Cleveland with his wife Linda. Blog buddy Mathman is the chaperone for a high school band from Georgia performing during the festivities.
My own plans aren't nearly as fancy, but this is the first time in my life that anyone has ever invited me to come over and celebrate an inauguration. The person who invited me is my rock-ribbed Republican father, so I'll be going over to his place tonight to watch the speech. I'll be bringing cheeses.
To be clear, my rock-ribbed Republican father likes to call himself a Lincoln Republican now, though having done the math, I'm pretty sure he didn't actually vote for Lincoln. He is not now nor has he ever been a Bushie. I know some Bush supporters through work, but I've never broken bread with any to the best of my knowledge.
