Back to Des Moines, Iowa today. It is the same quiet and calm place.
Had dinner with fellow speakers and organizers for tomorrow's SAS user conference at the Machine Shed restaurant. Most people did not finish their plates - the portion is enough for two!
According to someone who is familiar with the local political scene, this is where Republican presidential candidates must visit and campaign. Except for Trump, as the venue is not big enough.
The dining hall in the picture and the bar beside did not open today. Not because it is a venue frequently used by political figures.
Just because they cannot find enough workers to keep them running!
