I've been off-line for several days, but very much enjoyed checking in today and reading all the great posts on the estate tax, moral anthropology, religion and public reasons, and evangelicals' politics. Great stuff!
I'm in Anchorage, Alaska (where I grew up), with my 5 year old son, attending my 20th high-school reunion. It's been great seeing old friends, and Anchorage is a beautiful town. I did have a "went back to Ohio, but my city was gone" moment, though, when I drove by one of the houses I used to live in, and found that one of my former neighbors had bought it and torn it down. I'm sure there's a Catholic legal theory / new urbanism angle to my grief . . .
