Seeking to bring order out of the chaos of my hard drive, I came across these photos from a 2008 speech I gave for The Future of Freedom Foundation at George Mason University. (I had to get in one more thrashing of George W. Bush before he left office a few months later.) These pictures were taken by Morgan Ashcom, who has since become a famous photographer – the author of two books as well as teaching at Cornell, U.Va., and other colleges.
