I just got back from Phoenix, Arizona where I participated in my company’s first ‘All-Hands’ meeting. For those of you not ‘down’ with US business lingo, this is a meeting where everyone in the company (or a high percentage) travel from all parts of the country for a meeting and training. It was a good time. The training was tight and it was nice to finally put faces with the names.
During the meeting I came to the conclusion that wine is the cute girl (or to be politically correct person) that you flirt with in the evening, and then her/their other half shows up to beat the crap out of you in the morning.
A few people have asked me about my feelings on the election in the 27th district.

Well, there you go.
My friend Chris has been doing some inspired writing on the rise of Marshall as the top university in West Virginia. His link is in my blog roll.
Presumed Democratic candidate Barack Obama referenced the US having 57 states. I’m guessing in the back of his mind was a quick strike on Canada and completing the merger with Mexico. But, I could be wrong.
It appears Hillary Clinton’s online strategy is to watch for anything unique about Barack’s site and just copy it. Currently, her head is the size of a Macy’s Day Parade blow up. Has anyone else noticed that she never faces the camera in any of her campaign ads? I get not having mirrors around because the lack of reflection would freak out the electorate, but why not show the whole nose?
And finally, I’m currently reading The Dilbert Principle. It should be required for all undergraduates preparing for the working world. Screw Porter and Aaker, this book will teach you more about corporate work than anything else.
