. . . in a month where Wired pronounced blogging so over and several other bloggers wondered about the future of their blogs I said, well, a whole lot of nothing. It’s not for lack of words but for lack of time. As you’ll see in my next post, my stepdad passed away early in the month, necessitating a trip to Minnesota. I then went to New Jersey and then the crush of things here came down upon me when I returned. This weekend sees a bit of a return to “normal” if by “normal” we mean “on the eve of a world-historic election” and “at the beginning a very intense month of November where I deal with 2 searches and 2 classes at once.” So all apologies and that, but I suspect this blog will remain fairly slow and sporadic through November. At least I won’t be on the road, though.
