Sorry to break it to you all like this, but I am going off on vacation. During this said vacation, who will be blogging away here like usual? Not I, said the little black duck.
At the same time, since we know that at least some of you have a worrisome dependency problem, we have arrived at a solution of sorts. I rummaged around and came up with a list of blog posts from the past that perhaps drew more attention than normal. So, starting Wednesday morning (as in, tomorrow), these older posts will be appearing with some regularity on the front page. All you have to do is read them, and ignore any time references that are no longer accurate.
I am going to be le gone, as the French say, from the 13th to the 28th.
