Poor planning, sporadic blogging, much-needed resting
A quick update, given that nothing new has appeared here in quite some time, an unusual thing for us...
Richard and I are both currently on vacation, and that includes a vacation from blogging -- and in my case even from paying much attention to what's going on in the world, including in the world of American politics (which just keeps getting sadder and stupider in many ways). I wrote a few things last week, but otherwise I'm enjoying the disconnection, and I know Richard is as well. Now, of course, we have several other co-bloggers here, but generally they've been taking late-summer breaks as well, and generally posts don't go up if at least one of Richard or me isn't around.
In any event, we'll have some new posts up soon, so stay tuned, and we expect to be back to our usual schedule on or just after Labo(u)r Day weekend. We're looking forward to a busy fall, with some interesting gubernatorial and mayoral races to follow, with attention turning more acutely to the '14 midterms, with Republicans constantly trying to outdo themselves on the crazy scale, and with perhaps a little less media obsession with such trivial matters as, say, the ups and downs of Anthony Weiner's Carlos Danger (but who are we kidding?).
Otherwise, enjoy the rest of the summer. Be safe, and be good to one another.
