THANKS!….A million thanks and a big round of applause to Julie Saltman and Praktike for guest blogging for me this weekend. I’ll be back here blogging as usual on Monday, but you can keep up with Julie at her blog, Julie Saltman, and with Praktike at Liberals Against Terrorism. They’re both on my regular reading list, and I recommend them to all of you as well.
