Birthdays Yesterday - Ira
I missed blogging yesterday, so I missed mentioning the big birthdays on April 13th. Yesterday was the birthday (53?) of one of my best friends from my graduate school days, and the best man at my wedding, Ira. Ira probably did more than anyone else in turning me in my 20s from shallow liberalism to I-hope-somewhat-less-shallow conservatism; from being unthinkingly pro-choice to ardently pro-Life; and from the silly hate-the-rich socialism so characteristic of the non-productive classes often found on college campuses to... well, let's just say that I have a more adult view of the purposes of government worth taxing me for now that I have actual income to tax. Thanks, Ira! And, Happy Birthday!
