After a 2.5 week trip to the Midwest to do the family thing, I'm back in Storrs. Nothing like a 15.5 hour drive the day before to focus the mind.
I want to thank David for his posts. For those not familiar with sociology publications (and, very, very few people in society are... a comment on sociology), several of David's posts are not far from publishable quality as research notes. In fact, maybe I'll just print them out and send them in to a journal :-)
We had originally intended to spend longer on the trip, but I realized that if I let David blog much more, the readers of this blog would get too used to the quality of his work...
A funny story from the trip: When looking at the South Bend paper, I read an article about how summer county fair goers were choosing healthier food... deep-fried vegetables.
