Right. I'm heading off to Annapolis for a few days, to watch my younger brother graduate from some little tugboat school
or other. Should be fun! But it's possible there will be no blogging 'round these parts until Sunday, unless I manage to leech someone's wireless signal along the way. But before leaving, I do want to say many, many thanks to readers here for all the truly wonderful comment threads over the past few weeks—I've learned far more about valuing forests, inequality, and when and when not to use the Force than I really thought possible. I'm very grateful. Alright, cheers.
