This post directs no ill-will to the great events Georgetown is putting on this semester. I'm actually from Messiah College. Hope you know about this Patrick.

Any chance of getting an RSS feed on that audio archive?

Dan,
Wow! Do you know where and when? I'll try to be there.

Dr. Deneen, I'm not sure whether you qualify as a philosopher, but was wondering whether you might check over this petition:

Patrick,

I check your blog about once a week after looking at Rod's. I hope you made it to the event on Sunday. Although, Wendell was not the keynote speaker as advertised and the whole atmosphere was a glorified pep-rally, I was humbled by the chance to hear my hero speak, Wendell Berry. Since you have been blogging more as of late, I will check back more often.
