On the way home from the airport, my cab was playing a "news" talk show talking about how Muslims should be stripped of their rights as citizens and deported. The cab driver turned up the show and told me I had to listen. "What do you think," I asked. "He's teaching hate," he said. He then went on to explain that this was good; we had too much freedom here in America and we needed to learn hate so we would be less vulnerable.
Since returning I've had a relatively relaxing weekend. However I'm not getting out enough. I need to find a way to be social and meet people. This weekend probably would have been an ideal time to go to a party, but I am behind enough on IETF stuff that I actually needed to spend today working.
