I’m back from Bryn Mawr. It was a great conference; but no rest for me: Mises U. begins tonight!

The shuttle from Atlanta was fuller than usual last night; and given that the passengers were all talking about praxeology, nullification, and central banking, I suspect I know what they’re in town for.

This looks like it might be fun. Helen Mirren’s character seems like she could be River Song’s mom.
