I spent the weekend in Chicago visiting my family. My sister-in-law ran in the Chicago Marathon, so I got to see my brother and my nephews, which was nice. And my dad closed on his new downtown condo, in the amazing "Heritage at Millennium Park," a magnificent new building. He will live on the 47th floor, with spectacular views of the city.

And I had lunch with Maya, which was also lovely.


I found an interesting editorial, from the very conservative Reagan-loving British newspaper The Business.

Here is an excerpt:
This newspaper is second to none in its pro-American sentiments; in the early Bush years it devoted much ink to defending the President against the often malevolent and ignorant attacks of a congenitally anti-American European media. But we know a lost cause when we see one: the longer President Bush occupies the White House the more it becomes clear that his big-government domestic policies, his preference for Republican and business cronies over talented administrators, his lack of a clear intellectual compass and his superficial and often wrong-headed grasp of international affairs – all have done more to destroy the legacy of Ronald Reagan, a President who halted then reversed America’s post-Vietnam decline, than any left-liberal Democrat or European America-hater could ever have dreamed of. As one astute American conservative commentator has already observed, President Bush has morphed into the Manchurian Candidate, behaving as if placed among Americans by their enemies to do them damage.
The rest of the article is pretty good too. It talks about the Supreme Court and a bunch of other stuff. See it now!

So that's fun.
