Commencement 2003

* Okay, sometimes C-Span‘s coverage can be a bit dry. But during May and June, I’d encourage you to check out this channel during your regular channel surfing, or during bouts of insomnia.

Rock, Paper, Scissors

Hope everyone had a good weekend. A good time was had by all here in this little corner of Chi-town. Much food was eaten and many sights were seen. We visited the Body Builder and Sportsman Gallery, which is not what you think it is. They had a great video installation by Kerry Tribe. They […]

Cats on Fire
