Common Vents
October 2, 2004 — 6:21 pm

So here I am in Paul Jacob’s basement again, taping another 11 episodes of your favorite two-minute radio show, Common Sense. It can be a challenge dealing with the random noises you’re prone to encounter in a house, which ordinarily go unnoticed: air conditioning vents turning off and on, water rushing by in overhead pipes, footsteps upstairs, the occasional barking dog . . . But we also had to deal with a different set of random office noises back when we recorded at the old U.S. Term Limits office.

If all goes according to plan, this will end up being the first set of commentaries to be offered up under the banner of Americans for Limited Government instead of U.S. Term Limits. But since it’s right before the election and everyone is busy as hell, the changeover may be delayed. We’ll see.

In the meantime, it’s always fun looking at the two-plus decades of political memorabilia covering the walls of Paul’s basement office (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

Incidentally, a couple of the photos I link above contain items I designed. The second photo shows a map of initiative & referendum laws throughout the U.S. that I made, and the fifth photo contains the front flap of an invitation I made for a Cato policy forum celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 22nd Amendment (which established term limits for the president). You can see a larger version on the U.S. Term Limits web site. That was the first time I had tried Photoshopping disparate elements together into a seamless whole. Well, relatively seamless. I would do a few things differently today, but I think it’s pretty good for a first effort . . .
