I just wanted to put up a brief note of apoplogy for being missing in action. I had a death in my family and have been back home dealing with funeral and estate (and grief) issues. And by home, I mean the land of dial up internet with no Washington Post, no CNN, and no local news channel that cares about anything other than news from that state (and really only news from the central part of that state).
So I have been out of the loop.
I am back home (my home in DC that is) now and trying to get caught up.
Hopefully there will be new (and hopefully interesting to you) posts soon...
