So. I'm in Austin, Texas, for a national conference of the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC). This is a group of people who do sort of what I do in Delaware in all the other states. There are 48 states represented this year, which makes for a crowded, but exciting meeting.
I'm up for election to the Board of Trustees this year. My candidate speech this morning included a request from Karen that no one vote for me. It would be neat to be on the board, but it would be added work and one additional trip each year and that's a hardship on her. So. If I am not elected, it will not be a major disappointment.
Meanwhile, I cannot gloat that the Reskins won on Sunday and the Cowboys lost. Nor can I be as open about my political leanings as I would really like.
