Vacation Note

VACATION NOTE….I’m off for a long weekend visiting friends in Northern California. The border authorities have granted me a 96-hour visa, with my wife and cats left behind as security against my return.

But the blog won’t be going dark. Filling in for me are a couple of my favorite bloggers: Laura Rozen of War and Piece and Brad Plumer of the aptly named Bradford Plumer. Laura is flying back from China as I write this, so perhaps she’ll share some tales of Guangzhou and Wuhan in addition to blogging on all the usual stuff.

I’ll be back on Wednesday. In the meantime, you’re in good hands.
