OUT OF TOWN….I’ll be on vacation for the next few days, but I’ve roped in a couple of wonderful guest bloggers to handle the site while I’m gone: Hilzoy from Obsidian Wings and Shakespeare’s Sister from her eponymous blog. I expect them both to raise the tone around this place a bit, so treat ’em nice, OK?

Unfortunately, this means that I’ll miss the Iraqi elections on Thursday while Marian and I are out sightseeing. Here’s hoping that they go well.

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