My most unusual email of this Independence Day weekend came from Colorado National Guardsman Hal Jennings, who wrote to commend the Centennial Institute for sponsoring such events as the John Guandolo briefing on jihad and sharia (June 15) and the upcoming Western Conservative Summit in Lone Tree (July 9-11). His is also the most conclusive can’t-come explanation we’re likely to receive. As for you, never mind the explanation, just come. WesternConservativeSummit.com has all the details and an easy reservation link. We’ll hope to see you there. Jennings’ email, and a photo of him in Kabul, are below.
