I'm back at my computer and blogging again (albeit lightly) in the wake of the best vacation I've ever had...and that's saying a great deal! Tomorrow I'll start ruminating about Romania and Hungary, both of which were incredible but today is still a period of recovery from having too much fun.

"O-H-I-O, Suppressed democracy has got to go," they chanted. After troopers pushed and scuffled with people, nearly a hundred people took over the steps and entrance to the State's giant white column capital building and refused repeated orders to disperse or face arrest.
