So, I've been gone. I came home from my wonderful cruise to a bunch of email, a stolen laptop, and lots of work. I'll be home a whopping 7 full days in June, but I'll try to give a quick wrap-up.Locally in Utah, we've had a nice surprise where a little 11-yr-old scout was found in the rugged Uintah mountains after 4 days of wandering. He's basically unhurt. I think that's great news.In the U.S., I don't think a whole lot has happened except the Democrats voted against installing Bolton as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., and lots of bickering over the terrorist camp in Guantanamo. In Europe, France and The Netherlands, to the dismay of their leaders, voted against the EU Constitution, basically issuing it a death sentence. They followed that up with an EU budget meeting high on arguing and low on progress.In the Middle East, Iran is going through presidential elections, and Lebanon is also going through elections where it appears a large majority of Anti-Syrian candidates have been elected.In the Carribean, I did some wonderful diving and got lots of sun and bug bites.And that's a wrap.

Welcome back, and sorry to hear about the laptop. I heard about one that had been taken, but I didn't know it was yours.
Wow, as big of a deal as you made it, I expected your website to be a little more difficult/creative then, cameron.harr.org. Anywho
So Cam, Is that really all the fun you had on you Carribean get away?
In response to your laptop situation, propriety therefore dictates that, when you leave said items out for the taking, they will be taken.
I consider the vote against the EU constitution consider to be on the same level as the interrogation antics employed during the Spanish Inquisition.
And as a final note, Josh and my relationship is also "high on arguing, low on progress."
Hope all is well.
So you're saying I don't have the most creative website? How rude!
In truth though, I've felt guilty for not overhauling my website every once in a while -- I just don't care enough to do it.Hmm, a cleptomaniacal propriety? I don't like that precedent. That means finders keepers, losers weepers in everything. Whatever happened to the good 'ol American tradition of shooting someone if they touch your stuff?And for the cruise? Well, I thought we agreed that what happens on the cruise stays on the cruise :). Really though, I try not to use my blog as a personal journal (maybe someday), so I keep personal stuff to a minimum. I'd hate for someone that reads my site to actually know me.
