Leaving Las Vegas

Thought I was leaving plenty of time to blog from the airport, Bush. Not gonna happen. Brought my rental car back in nice time, dropped it off, took the bus to the airport and was about to give the bus driver a tip for his pains...

No wallet. No jacket. I'd left it on the back set of the rental car. Took the bus back to the Budget office, ran a search on the jacket, and fortunately they found it. Bus back to the terminal. A nightmare line at security--though happily I found myself next to a trio of enthusiastic young Democrats from Missouri. A treat to talk to them, and hear their elation in the wake of their own conference here--maybe another little gaggle of readers for us, Bush.

Oh, and then there was an anomoly, it seems, as my bag ran through the scanning machine and they took me aside for a search. Turns out that a couple of magnet bumper stickers I'd picked up at the convention read like sharp edges. Problem resolved. So I arrived finally at the gate with just enough time to catch my breath. This will have to suffice for today. More on the YearlyKos convention tomorrow, then. Assuming I wake up in time...

Yeah, they're extra careful about anyone who looks like a liberal.

Welcome back to LA, Peter. Looks like you're going to have to have a signing party when all our books arrive. Your place?
