THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

"What has always made the State a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven."–Holderlin

HAIL BRITANNIA!

Tomorrow, my husband and I will be jetting “across the pond” to Liverpool, England for a few days.  There, on 8 December 2009, our son will receive his PhD in Late Roman History and Archeology.  His graduation from the University of Liverpool represents the culmination of a dream he has had since he was a youngster.  It also is an opportunity for us, as parents, to be unabashedly proud of their offspring, which we intend to be in an embarrassing quantity.

Look for new posts at The Sapient Sparrow after I return on 10 December 2009.  In the meanwhile, I hope that the dreams you, and your children, dream will all come true.  It really is the best!
