Well, I'm at least partially back.

Conventions: The political conventions are so much better now that the networks only carry an hour+ per evening. Gavel-to-gavel coverage was deadly dull in the old days. There is not much worse TV than one planned spontaneous demonstration after another! The speeches in prime time this year were mostly good. Clint Eastwood may have left us scratching our heads, but it was pretty entertaining. Bill Clinton may have left us wondering why Monica Lewinsky's boyfriend was President instead of this reasonable guy, but he got to the point. Ann Romney gave a pretty good account of what seemed a really lame speech. Michelle Obama might consider giving all of Barack's speeches. Ryan reminds me of that dorky, self assured teenager who when he comes to take your daughter out on their first date, as a father you just have to give a hard time. Biden's speech wasn't in prime time. Just as well. Both Mitt's and Barack's speeches seemed to be slightly anticlimactic as they started, but both finished well. All in all, the reduction in phony hoopla seems a spectacular success.
