Sorry, dear reader or two, for the very long silence. As usual, it’s mainly been the overload of extra work that I can’t seem to resist taking on that’s left me with very little energy or desire to write. Now that that’s out of the way, all of my spare time for the next couple of weeks will be devoted to packing up and moving about six blocks southwest to our new, better, brighter, cheaper apartment. But once that dust settles, I should have some time to devote to online musings again.
