I have wanted to post on both of these issues, but I'd be fooling myself if I thought I was going to get around to it. Fortunately others did the heavy lifting for me:
1. The Michael Medved speaking engagement. It was well worth attending, and had very good attendance. I'd estimate somewhere between 800-1100. I took notes, but it looks like X4mr did a very good job with his notes as well.
You know Medved was fabulous when X4mr and I are both in agreement with what was covered.
2. I noticed that there was a stir of excitement about Raul Grijalva’s appearance on the Colbert Report among the center-left portion of the local blogosphere, and then nothing but crickets after it took place. For those wondering why, ThinkRight AZ is all over it.
