The longest legislative day, and the penultimate one. We were in session most of the day, and finally got out about 9:30 this evening. There aren't that many pictures, because there wasn't much to see except the floor and floor debate. We passed the Budget for the next three years, and failed in our first attempt to make a complete response to the Windsor Report. We begin in the morning with a special Joint Session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies. After that, it's back to work, probably until quite late, when Convention will Adjourn until 2009. I will try to add report tomorrow night, to close up things, and post some of the final results. There are still some correspondents who have not reported in yet, and if they don't have a chance to file their reports by tomorrow, I'll try to encourage them to post them next week

There was little time off the floor for your Deputies today, but we do enjoy one another. ...We are a varied and diverse lot, with different opinions and great respect for each other.
The debate on the Canon concerning Ordained Ministry also got a lot of attention. And folks had lots of questions.
The Exhibit Hall closed today, but you could get all sorts of buttons there. And there were several places off the floor that had long lines.
