Back From Vacation

BACK FROM VACATION….It looks like I missed the excitement over George Bush’s latest assertion that he can do anything he wants because we’re at war ? including warrantless spying on U.S. citizens. Luckily, both Hilzoy and Shakespeare’s Sister kept up a terrific drumbeat of coverage over the weekend, so I feel like I’ve caught up just by reading my own blog now that I’m home.

(Yes, it’s mildly ironic that I keep up with current events far better when I’m in California than I do when I’m actually in our nation’s capital. But I’ve barely even read a newspaper for the past four days.)

In any case, many thanks to both of my guest bloggers for filling in while I was gone. I hope everyone enjoyed the change of pace. I’ll be back blogging as usual Monday morning.
