We were supposed to have Bill McGurn to dinner on Monday night, but the weather intervened with a vengeance. Last Sunday night, Hillsdale got hit with an ice storm. Thrice on Monday – from midnight to 3 a.m., an hour in the morning, and from 3 to 6 p.m. – we were without power. Others in and out of town fared much worse, having to do without power for the better part of a week.
In any case, Monday night we took Bill to a local greasy spoon, and we had him over last night and talked from about 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. The Rahes have small children and are normally up at 6:30 a.m. – so it has been a while since they indulged themselves in a bull session that ran into the wee hours.More
