Hinckley, Clinton, Hilton

Last night, Jamie and I went to hear William Jefferson give a keynote at a dinner gala as guests of a major appliance manufacturer. Held at the Hinckley Hilton, the evening honored the work of a local black think-tank called the Joint Center. Man, that ex-President can talk! We will never hear a retired Dubya expound for thirty minutes on the social origins of childhood obesity.

Researching my evening's logistics led me to discover a cool new website: Virtual Globetrotting. A community-driven geocoding cite, VG "shows and categorizes cool locations around the world with satellite pictures from Google Maps and Windows Live Local" plus street-level views from contributors.
