Back, Finally

Okay, now I'm really back.

I wasn't actually back on Thursday -- I blogged a bit as if I was, but in fact I was still in Beirut due to the hotel not giving me a wakeup call. I had originally mentioned this, but then deleted it, because Hezballah has surveillance at the airports (that's what the fighting was about last year -- they wanted to get Hezballah out of the airports, because they monitored people coming in and sometimes killed them).

So even though I'm hardly a big fish for Hezballah, I didn't want to tip them as to when I'd be leaving.

I spent 22 1/2 hours traveling on Friday -- I left Beirut at 7:30 am, Beirut time, and didn't get to not_steve_in_hb's, who was hosting a reunion of sorts, until after midnight New York time. Saturday I spent mostly napping.

But now, officially, I'm back in America. Still traveling (CPAC is coming up on Thursday), but now actually blogging again.

Sorry I was gone for so long. Since I started this blog, I've never taken more than 2-3 days off, ever. This was the first time I've ever been away from posting for a week.

Thank God [Gabe]: Thank God you're back, Ace. Your mother and I were so worried.
