It’s sort of a late announcement, but I am on the road travelling for the next few weeks. I’m currently sitting outside my gate at Narita, waiting for a Northwest flight to Seattle in about an hour. I’ll spend a week in Seattle at a conference, then head east for a week of training and a quick visit with my parents in St. Louis. I’m looking forward to the trip, I’ve never been to Seattle before. Now if only I didn’t have to sit in coach for 9 hours to get there…

Looks like Mike Ditka won’t be running for the senate in Illinois. I am sure there is much gnashing of the teeth in Republican offices across Illinois today.
