This blog will be on standby for a while. As you might have noticed, I haven’t posted a great deal in the last few months (exactly twice since the middle of August). For various reasons including a total absence of a functioning computer and an unrelenting bout of depression, I will be taking some time off from blogging here while I attempt to sort my life out. If some especially entertaining or note-worthy piece of news comes out, I might comment. Hopefully I’ll be back to normal service by November.
