Evening Musings-Wedding prep is going smoothly. Our project for today was to set up the church, as we moved the proper chairs, screens and candelabras to set up the sanctuary for Saturday's ceremony and then set up the downstairs hall for the reception. Afterwards, we had an extended bi-family 4th cookout, with Eileen, myself, both sets of parents, both our sisters, three of her college buddies and a buddy's husband, my brother-in-law, my niece and my friend Alan, who was a last-minute add due to a weekend umpiring job having him booked solid from tomorrow on. By 6:30, I was peopled-out and napped for an hour. I'll be rejoining civilization shortly. Someone shot up the El Al terminal at LAX this afternoon, killing two Israelis before being killed by security, according to early reports. The piece mentions the Gray Gentleman's comments ""Like all Californians, I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn of today's shooting at Los Angeles International Airport...." Two problems with that line. There are some people up at SFSU that might be happy and he needs to fire his speechwriter, since that is one lame piece of boilerplate. It's not a true 4th piece, since it was written late last year, but Patrick Ruffini linked to a good David Brooks piece on a trip to rural Pennsylvania, comparing the bobos of his native metro DC to this Red State (well, a Red part of a Blue State) turf.
