If you can call it Security at all. Everyone I saw was setting off metal detectors, and no one looked. I had my laptop backpack on, and no one even cared to look. I could have left my backpack anywhere in the place, and no one would have cared a bit. Anyone who was armed could have shot their way through the security and been on the floor of either House in a matter of moments.
I'm really glad no one has felt the need to attack Kentucky's State Government, because it would be easy to do.

I don't know if UConn will win or not, but Albany deserves to win.
-- Update: OK, UConn won, but they sure didn't deserve to do so.

Milady wasn't happy for the two of us to head out at 6:30 AM, but out we went. We had to drive by my parents' house to get a second copy of the map to the packing house, then head most of the way in Liberty. When we got to my parents' house, Number 1 Son insisted on calling Milady and telling her we were there. Then he did it again when we got to the packing house.
"Son, why did you call Mom?"
"She was really worried about us, so I wanted to make sure I called."
"She wasn't really that worried."
"Yes, she was, Dad, so I wanted to call."
As Milady said, we can only hope that he keeps this up when he's 16 and out with friends....

Now I've got a beard that approaches respectable:
I ended up cleaning some 3 inch hairs out of the sink once I was done trimming my beard.
Fortunately, I'm still one of those long-hair freaky people:
