OUT OF TOWN….I’ll be in Washington DC for the next couple of days in order to appear on Monday’s “New Progressivism” panel at the Center for American Progress. If you’re in the area and want to attend, details are here.

While I’m gone two terrific guest bloggers will be handling the site: Avedon Carol of The Sideshow and Steve Benen of The Carpetbagger. Avedon blogs from Britain and Steve blogs from the East Coast, so posts will probably be appearing here at different hours than you’re used to seeing from me.

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