Although I loved my seven weeks in San Diego, it's wonderful to be back home with my family in Cincinnati. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to teach at two great law schools -- the University of Cincinnati and the University of San Diego are very different (small, public, secular v. large, private, Catholic), but they are remarkably similar in having terrific deans, superb faculties, talented students, fantastic staffs, and excellent libraries. In addition, San Diego has a well-deserved reputation as "America's Finest City," and Cincinnati is a fantastic place to live and raise a family. We knew we were called to be here when my wife found out she was pregnant with our first child the morning of my interview with Cincinnati at the meat market. It was cool to return this week to a recent New York Times profile of Cincinnati, along with our church's great message (God Loves Cincinnati), video (What We Love), and song (I Love My City).
