GUEST BLOGGERS….Many, many thanks to Lindsay Beyerstein and Michael Hiltzik, my guest bloggers while I was on vacation for the past week. They were both terrific. You can continue to read Lindsay on her own blog, Majikthise, and you can read Michael’s columns twice a week at the LA Times.

I’ll be back full-time starting Tuesday morning, as soon as I catch up on everything that happened while I was gone. See you then.
