Macon Cowles testing out his buddies Segway. Not only did he get on it and not fall over, he took off into the stree to see just how fast it would go. I don't think he got up to it's top speed of 12MPH, but he got close.

My younger brother Craig. Standing under near the Boulder Court House down on Pearl Street. He's an architect by trade and has a thing for these art deco buildings. That's a fountain on the right (I think.. that or a pillar of glass that's in the process of shattering).

My buddy Macon Cowles, in the act, running for City Council here in Boulder, Colorado.
Macon's one of those lawyers who actually makes a difference, does the right thing and has the right motivations. I wish him loads of luck (and plan on helping him get elected). We need more people like this involved in politics, be it local, state or national.
Me? I'm hoping this is just the first step in a long political career for Macon. He's already, in my book, got more class, better ideas and a smarter approach to how you go about making society a better place than the folks we have in the senate today. But, one step at a time. I'm sure, if he reads this, he'll laugh at the thought. Hopefully, with time, he'll see he's the kind of guy we want (hell, that we NEED) in real positions of influence in American government.
