Hey, GOP, tell me again why it is a good idea to vote this perspective into the White House? I guess it’s the ultimate in de-regulation. (Thanks to my Aunt M.)

[conventions] FenCon Day 1

Yesterday was jam packed. Spent almost six hours with the workshop folks, which got us through two more crit sessions plus some lengthy discussion. Had a nice GoH lunch with the concom and most of the GoH squad. Made opening ceremonies, where I delivered an impromptu speech, had some later evening panelling which was stupid fun, cruised the party circuit near the end of the night, then crashed hard.

Doing it all again today.
