Leaving Napa

This year’s Napa Institute went by very quickly, compared to the past two years.


I’m sure part of that is my comfort/familiarity with its structure at this point, but it has also grown significantly in size just since I started coming and that has made it somewhat more difficult to break out of the initial social cliques that naturally form starting from day one. Napa Institute continues to be one of my favorite social/professional experiences, although I’m not sure that I’ll be able to attend next year.

I’m planning to be in San Francisco on Tuesday for David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress when they appear at the federal courthouse. Both face lawsuits from Planned Parenthood, and Daleiden faces an additional suit from the National Abortion Federation, as these groups attempt to suppress footage of their executives speaking in callous and inhumane ways about aborted children’s bodies and the market-rates that their vivisected remains are worth to medical researchers.
