I woke up this morning at 4 AM to catch a cab ride to Midway, to catch a plane to Durham, to visit with my lovely wife and to pick up Pippa for our mutual return to Evanston. The travel went very smoothly (I quite like flying Southwest — I just wish they didn’t fly only from Midway). When Pippa and I escorted Margaret in to campus for the class she TAs, we ran into my mentor from my years at Yale, Richard Hays; Richard and I had a good, long conversation, then Pippa and I came back to Margaret’s apartment and I had a serious nap.
While I staggered and dozed through the day, Jordon launched Resonate, Si started his college life. Richard figured out that his home is still afloat in New Orleans (and that’s a good thing). I posted the next chapter of the Theological Outlines, Chapter Twenty-Two (The Church).
It’s still time to help in any way you can. If you haven’t already made a contribution, I endorse Episcopal Relief and Development. If you’re unmoved by the coverage you’ve seen, perhaps the reports at the Times-Picayune and Metroblogging will touch you.
