News you do not want to read hours before taking off for England: The pound has hit a 26-year high against the dollar. As of right now it is trading at $2.01 to the pound. Oh -- and there are concerns about inflation.

I will be leaving in about an hour and will be gone for just under a week. I am heading to the British Association of American Studies meeting in Leicester where I will be on a panel on the Freedom Rides with Ray Arsenault and possibly one of the Freedom Riders.

I'll write as I can, but posting may be light, intermittent, or nonexistent. In the meantime, you might want to check out some of my recent work over at the Foreign Policy Association's South Africa Blog.
