Pack the pork rinds and Blue Ribbon! Posting may be light through the weekend. We're hitting the road early tomorrow for a run up to the Bay Area. The excuse is a college graduation and USNR commissioning for son of one's near and dear to us. The festivities will be at Cal Maritime.

Cal Maritime is a small California state college that never makes it onto most people's radar. It should because it's a fine institution. Then again, why would it? It's in the Bay Area and it cranks out graduates, many of whom have conservative leanings. Even more shocking is that many of the grads go onto serve in various branches of the military. Horrors! And so close to Berkley.
