HOUSEKEEPING NOTE….I won’t be around this weekend, but that doesn’t mean the blog will be shutting down. No indeed. Instead, I’m leaving the blog in the hands of two guest bloggers. Filling in for me are the excellent and discerning Julie Saltman of Julie Saltman, and Praktike, frequent commenter and coblogger at Liberals Against Terrorism.

I’ll be back on Monday. See you then.
