Look Who I Found Tag

I'm back from California. In less than 72 hours on the ground, I packed in three important events, including a talk on campus free speech and culture for the Cornell and Harvard Clubs in Orange County, a panel appearance about anti-Israel activism on campuses at the national conference of Alums for Campus Fairness, and our Legal Insurrection Reader Reception.

I'm really not thrilled with the Featured Image. I look McSmirky. But it's the only close up of me at the podium I have from my lecture last night at the invitation of the Sharon (MA) Republican Town Committee.

Even though we're not in Kansas anymore....

That's Legal Insurrection reader Joel E. who lives in a town near Tel Aviv, and reached out to me when he read I was heading for Israel. The featured image is us at a really good falafel place near the beach. I also saw Legal Insurrection favorite and sometimes contributor "Anne in Petah Tikva" and her husband.  Except that night, she was "Anne in Tel Aviv."

Is this now a series? At my speech in Rochester I found Philly Guy. On Wednesday night, February 18, 2015, I appeared on a CAMERA panel in West Palm Beach about countering the anti-Israel movement on campus. I don't know the official count, but I'm guesstimating about 200 people in attendance. I found Legal Insurrection reader, commenter and Twitter fan @SGLawrence [Featured Image], who attended with her daughter. More than that, they gave me a wonderful gift of two illustrated books by Sam Fink, Exodus and The Constitution, accompanied by a wonderful note:
Every time I on on, I feel that all is not lost -- if there are still thinkers out there like you, applying their incredible talents in these times, I must remain an optimist. Ever since I discovered Sam Fink, I have made it my business to share his beautiful books on The Constitution and on the 5 Books of Exodus. There's just something about Fink that reminds me of you -- a real love of America and Israel, I guess.

Two longtime Legal Insurrection readers, brothers Jim from California and Jon from Michigan. Jim's daughter was a student of mine and we met yesterday at Cornell Law School's post-commencement reception. You may not be able to see it, but Jim was wearing an AR-15 pin. ...
