We arrived in downtown Memphis, Tennessee, early Wednesday evening and spent some time walking around and seeing the sights. There was some sort of big festival happening on Beale Street with a lot of people and motorcycles. And of course, I had the obligatory ‘Walking in Memphis’ stuck in my head the whole time:

Melissa had an appointment at a local gallery/museum mid-day on Thursday, so we had a long drive Thursday afternoon all the way to Norman, Oklahoma, just south of Oklahoma City. Here are some of my photos from Memphis.

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
