More data to chew on

I love the Pew Research Center. They provide such great data on people's ideas and attitudes. They are a real reality check on what we think is going on in this country.

Blog Con

I'm sitting in the lobby of the conference hotel, waiting for the action to start. Well, I'm not waiting for the action to start, really, I'm waiting for my organizational compatriot for the Sunday Christian service to meet for lunch and a planning session because one of the three of us got stuck on the other side of the pond, and can't come. So we have to make due. Which will be fine after I finish freaking out.
