Laughing at the decline

So this finally came in the mail the other day:

This is a photo of myself and the indomitable Mark Steyn. This took place about two months ago at the Center of the American Experiment's fall briefing. It was an honor listening to Steyn, as he is perhaps one of the more prolific right-of-center commentators and authors going today (He's become a regular fill-in host on Rush Limbaugh's radio show). Steyn is one of those rare personalities that can paint a clear portrait of how American is headed towards a Greece-like decline yet has us laughing uproariously about it the whole way down.

The CAE is an terrific organization committed to espousing the virtues of free market principles. In fact, the Center is celebrating it's 25th birthday next year with an epic event in early June 2015. The keynote speaker that evening? None other than the preeminent political satirist (and whom my friend and NARN colleague Mitch Berg cites as a big reason he turned to conservatism) P.J. O'Rourke!

I ain't missing this one!!
