I am in Austin for the annual meeting of the International Security sections of the ISA and APSA. A busy day of travel which started with a key oversight (will discuss after I get home).
I was amused that the "night club" featured in Friday Night Lights, the Landing Strip, is on the way from the airport to downtown Austin.
I was struck by how many pinata stores were on a stretch of road on the way to the hotel.
I pondered whether the group in town at the Convention Center, the National League of Cities, is a force for good or evil.
I accomplished what I needed to accomplish this weekend: found some tasty sopapillas.
Next step: BBQ. Ok, next step is serving as discussant on Saturday and then to present a paper on Sunday.... but the BBQ is calling.
