An interesting panel on using pop culture to advantage this morning. Madison Rising (Richard Mgrdechaian)was there, Alan Korwin, J. Neil Schulman and Peggy Tartaro.

I had known J. Neil and Alan, but hadn't had a chance to talk to J. Neil yet, so I went up after his talk and arranged for a place to meet and catch up. "Tex" Fuller hit me at the door and suggested lunch. I told him I wanted to talk to J. Neil and he came along.

They had never met, and did not know each other, but it soon became obvious that they had numerous mutual friends and got deep into proffessional film making shop talk while I watched from the sidelines. Maybe there is some synergy there - both are liberty oriented.

I also had a chance to chat with Dr. Timothy Wheeler who gave a talk on the appeal to uphold the Florida law that prevents Doctors from entering information about their patients gun ownership (often obtained from young children) into databases that are available to the government, among other boundary violations.

We would not have to worry about it if doctors were not being coopted into state drones by legislation.

I missed David Burnett's presentation on Students for Concealed Carry, Charles Heller from JPFO, and many others, because I thought some networking had a momentary higher priority.

As usual, I am leaving with a buzz from the association with so many bright and active people who get it.

It was nice to have the hotel in the airport, even if it meant some more hassles for exercising our rights.

I expect to grab some sleep on the flights back. Too many projects, not enough time.

Thanks for the update. The boundary violations issue with doctors is about to become a whole lot more important if Obamacare is not repealed. More government, more losses of liberty. Good to know folks at the GRPC are fighting back.
