    Alexandria Dinner, March 1st, 2014

    I'm proposing a 6:00 p.m. dinner at the Southside 815 Restaurant on Saturday, March 1st. They can accommodate 10-12 people and I will need an accurate headcount about a week in advance. Their address is 815 S Washington St, Alexandria, VA 22314. Please RSVP here.

    Aaaaauuughhh!! I can't wait that long! Anticipation is killing me!

    Put me down for one.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Thanks, Citizen. One noted. Sorry I could not have scheduled it sooner.

    Tess invited me to drive up and see the strange folks north of the Ni, so put me down for one.

    stay safe.

    For those not familiar with Southside 815, there is plenty of free parking behind the restaurant (turn onto Jefferson, then make the first left into the alley; the building is marked Clayborn or something like that). As you go down the ramp and make the U-turn to the next row, the visitor (V) spots are at the end of the row -- and nearest an elevator that will take you to street level.

    I wish I could go, and I'd bring the wife and kids, except the wife's due date is March 5. I'm not committing to anything except her for the next month. (After all, she's the better shot, as I learned 5 years ago on our first date. )

    I think I can mark that one as a "probable".

    How many people do you have now?
    I'm a chapter leader of a woman's shooting club and there are probably a few people of them (4 or 5) that live in the area who might be interested in attending but don't want to extend the invite if we've got the max you need.

    Currently we have 10 (Including you) + a probable, so I think it's do-able if several more attend. Just let me know what the committed total is so I can advise the restaurant.

    Yes. Turn right where you see the light concrete there -- it's a parking garage.
