What has

Amy Goodman, John Stauber, dozens of experts and vendors, solar panels, wind turbines, charge controllers, inverters, 15000 attendees, and me? It's the Midwest Renewable Energy Fair in Custer, Wisconsin! I drove all night last night to get here, including nearly two hours on the Dan Ryan parking lot in Chicago--a midnight traffic jam! Neither Amy nor John had a lot to say about renewable energy, but their Bush- and media-bashing speeches were well received nonetheless.

I'm typing this on a horrible Internet kiosk in the lobby of the Holiday Inn in Stevens Point while some sleazy lounge band warms up for a wedding reception in the background. The kiosk claims, falsely, to support WiFi access. If it had, I could have posted the much more brilliant post that I had prepared on my laptop instead of this meager effort--and more besides! Probably not much more posting from me until Monday night; try to hold the world together in the meantime!
