First stop: Mansfield, Texas for the meeting of the Continuing Inquiry. I had never been to this event, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. I got to meet, for the first time Gary Shaw of Cover-Up fame. I liked him instantly and he ended up picking up Dissenting Views and Dissenting Views II. Incredibly nice man. Same could be said for Chris Gallop, who arranges the conference with great care and aplomb.
Russ Baker: avoids eye contact.
Russ Baker: studiously avoids eye contact.
The talk is dynamite.
Russ Baker: not present, but probably avoiding eye contact anyway.
Russ Baker: not present. Definitely avoids eye contact.
I'll be back as usual next year.
