I'm off...

...and I'm going to go anyway.

National Mall, here I come. Person by person, we'll gather and Rally to Restore Sanity".

And before that, I'll spend as much time as I can in the Library of Congress Manuscript Reading Room looking at the papers of Ephraim George Squier. I've recently learned he's my 3rd cousin, 4 times removed. If I'm counting correctly, that is. About 6 weeks ago, I was gobsmacked by genealogy, starting with the news that I have family going back to the early 1800s...in Wales. My Wales.

Film at 11, for very large values of 11.

There must be some strange and beautiful synergy involving you and Wales.

Have a great time at the big Rally. I'll be at the satellite rally in Seattle. Not sure how sane I'll be, however.

Our good friend Mike "Gecko" Griffith is heading for the rally too.

And now I see the other shoe — the part 1 — of the post I responded to already. Well. Why the hell can't LiveJournal let me push a button and read my posts in the order they were written, instead of backwards? (Is there a third-party fix for this anywhere?)
