I am in Bowling Green, Ohio, where I am presenting two papers at the Conference on Media, War and Conflict Resolution. I’ll be discussing the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the Mohammad Cartoon controversy.

When I signed up for this conference, I thought it was in Bowling Green, Kentucky — not too long a drive from Atlanta. I didn’t realize it was in Ohio — the top of Ohio — until a couple of weeks ago. Just spent the last 10 hours in the car.

Anyhoo, I’m now mulling a trip (in less than an hour) out of the hotel room to listen to the keynote speaker. Not looking likely.
