Munger Over America Tour

Got some ink for the Kids Prefer Cheese blog, written by M. Munger and some other guy.  I think "Chopped Liver" is a fine name for the other guy.

From the Muncie Free Press:  A story.  More than 100 students and faculty showed up.  It was fun!  Then dinner at the very nice Vera Mae's.  Mushroom risotto:  yum!  Thanks to Cecil Bohanan!  And thanks to Kathryn Kennison (whom I inexplicably called "Elizabeth" in front of an audience at least twice!), a morning "tea" talk at the E.B. Ball Center.  She handled it pretty well, though.  She said, "Now, you come back soon, John!"

Spoke to the Bastiat Society of Indianapolis.  GREAT crowd.  Then dinner here.  Wonderful. Big props to Fundman; good call on the restaurant.  I had the "Spinach and Artichoke Pici;"  amazing.

Then, senior session for Econ majors at Davidson College, thanks to Prof. Fred Smith.  And dinner at Brickhouse, with amazing beer list, and pints just $4 all the time.

Three nights, four talks, three very fine meals out, three hotel rooms in different cities where I spent very little time.  Wednesday was the worst:  got up at 3 am to catch 3:30 taxi to IND to catch 5:10 am plane to Raleigh.  Drive to Duke to teach macro class, then drive to Davidson.  Give talk.  Informal talk with students.  Dinner with students and faculty.  Went to bed at 11 pm.  A long day.

Today, Thursday, I gave a talk to a group of Kazakh officials about democracy.  They are for it.  Me, I have questions.

Now all I need to do is not eat for a week, and it's all good!
