To all my concerned and loyal readers: This blog hasn't so much crashed as stalled out for a bit. My laptop frazzled-- I'm getting the motherboard replaced three days before the warranty expires-- and I'm in the process of moving from Boston to San Francisco. In a few weeks I'll start work at Mother Jones
, doing who knows what incalcuable damage to the world of journalism. Once I'm settled and sane, I'll start posting again.
