WWII Memorial

I watched the World War II Memorial dedication yesterday and thought it was an excellent event. In particular I was impressed by President Bush's speech; although he never mentioned Iraq, it was presented in such a way that it was directly relevant to current foreign policy and the war on terror. I think it's the best speech I've ever heard him give, although I'd be a lot happier to see him so eloquent at a press conference or debate. Tom Brokaw and Tom Hanks also did a nice job, and the memorial itself gives me yet another reason to someday visit Washington D.C.

I've started working out the kinks with Blogger's new system, but it might take a more major overhaul to get it all right. I think everything is at least marginally functional, and the comments work if you're willing to dig a little.

One last thing - I'm on summer break, the most schedule-free summer I think I've had since 1997. This teaching gig is working out great!

Last Week of School; New Blogger Features

We're down to the last week of school, which soon means I'll have a lot more spare time on my hands. I've come to the conclusion that school isn't always time-consuming, but it is focus consuming. That's okay...I actually prefer it that way. When I need some extra time I can usually find it, but there's always something to work on, to improve, to think about.

I see that Blogger has made some improvements and that means my site (particularly the archives) will be broken for a week or two until I get it fixed. They've added the ability to add comments to posts, something Blogger was noticeably missing compared to the competition.
