Sorry for the absence. The latest series of antics from the far right fringe--the legalization of concentration camps and the Foley follies in particular--have left me so over- and underwhelmed that I've temporarily lost my blogging mojo. And I lack a word to describe my mixed feeling of revulsion and hilarity. I need to coin a new term, something like "terrisible".
(On a completely unrelated note, why does the blogger spellcheck feature not know the word "blogging". You'd think...)
