I've returned safely from Tanzania, and I thank you for your prayers. It was a tremendously fruitful trip, and I was blessed to not have so much as a sniffle the entire time.
It's a cliche you hear from everyone who takes a trip like this, but it's true: I can't believe what a great, easy life I have. I'll never look at a hot shower or a Dairy Queen Blizzard the same way again.
I'm glad President Bush didn't name a successor to Sandra Day O'Connor while I was gone. In Tanzania I was almost completely cut off from the news (though word of the London bombings did reach us), but the Supreme Court bloodbath is one that I didn't want to miss. Let the games begin!
