The talk last night seemed to go pretty well. Not a single heckler-type, which really surprised me. More than a few NRO-niks showed up which is always nice. The Cornell Review guys — who helped sponsor this thing — were a good bunch of guys. Though they seemed uninterested in post-oratory libation, which is always a dissapointment for me, personally and philosophically.
They put me up in the Statler — the Hotel school’s hotel. Nice place, though the officiousness of the staff sort of surpasses the niceness of the rooms. The staff is pretty much comprised of Cornell students (though the hookers are from Ithaca College, I’m told). The view is great.
