Ready For The Convention

am in Dallas now, getting ready for the Democratic State Convention (which starts today). The picture above is the view from my hotel room. I'm not staying in the official hotel, but three blocks away from the Dallas Convention Center. It's not as nice at the official hotel, but it has two advantages -- it cost half as much, and they gave me a smoking room, both of which I like a lot.

Hotmail is giving me problems. It doesn't recognize the site I'm posting from and wants to text me a code to verify I'm me. But of course, I left the phone they want to text to in Amarillo. So it doesn't look like I'll have access to my own e-mail until I get back to Amarillo on Sunday evening. I know they're just trying to keep me from getting my account hacked, but it's still irritating.

I'll try to do as much posting as I can for the next few days, and at least bring you some photos from the convention. Regular posting will resume on Monday.


  1. Thanks for posting from the convention, Ted. I look forward to seeing how it all goes. (Request from an ardent fan: please, consider stopping smoking. I gave it up in 1971 and I know just how hard that is.) Have fun and I look forward to all your reporting.

  2. Sorry that I didn't meet you in Dallas. I got my blogger credential request filed just after June 1 and the Dems had no leeway at the inn for me. I went up there anyway, had dinner with Perry and putzed around Big D.

    1. I didn't know you were there. I would have loved to meet you. Maybe next time we can meet and argue politics over dinner.
