It's always something....
According to Drezner family lore, whenever I travel I always leave something behind. Alas, this time around I forgot the AC cord for my laptop, so blogging will probably be very light today and tomorrow.
For those in DC, a reminder of why I'm travelling (note NEW LOCATION):
UPDATE: Well, the panel was a blast -- for those of us who had chairs to sit on. The room was pretty crowded, which was great in terms of interest but not so great in terms of temperature and ventilation. Thanks to one and all who showed up!

Did your laptop's manufacturer intentionally give your laptop an unusual power-cord connection, so that you would never be able to just walk into a CompUSA and buy one when in this situation? And did they do this with the hopes that ultimately you'd lose the cord, be unable to replace it, and have to just replace the laptop?
If so, please articulate for us the curses you would call down on those "compatibility - monoplists." They seem to make lots of cellphones too.

Funny that out of a panel of four bloggers asked to comment on the last election, they couldn't find one who supported the guy who actually won.

Seriously. You're the closest thing that they could get to a Bush voter?
I think it's a little odd to have 4 panelists and not a single Bush voter.posted by: mls on 11.18.04 at 02:41 PM [permalink]
Seriously. You're the closest thing that they could get to a Bush voter?Three partisan Democrats and a Democrat-voting Rino – sounds like the sort of “fair and balanced” panel we’ve grown accustomed to seeing on CNN. How is this panel different from the MSM again?
I think it's a little odd to have 4 panelists and not a single Bush voter.
Which pretty much destroys the credibility of any panel that purports to have any sort of meaningful discussion on the role on blogs on the last election when they didn’t include a single blogger that voted for and supported the guy who actually won. Seriously about half of the blogosphere that voted probably voted for and/or supported Bush and they couldn’t find a single conservative/libertarian bloger to present that POV?posted by: Thorley Winston on 11.18.04 at 02:41 PM [permalink]
