Happy Boxing Day!

I hope everybody's enjoying the holidays. It's been warm and rainy in Rome, not very Christmas-like weather, but we had a great day yesterday. First of all, Santa got me a nifty new Flip video recorder. Very cool! Then we had a wonderful Christmas dinner with friends at our friends Neil and Laura's apartment. I took the recorder along, of course!

Today also happens to be the 37th anniversary of the death of Harry Truman. So raise a glass for Harry tonight (bourbon, preferably). Here's his obituary from the New York Times. I think it's pretty good.
