I’M BACK….A million thanks to Steve Benen for taking over the blog on short notice yesterday. He’s a real lifesaver, and I just want to say publicly as well as privately how much I appreciate his help.

The reason I got called away so suddenly on Wednesday was because we learned that Marian’s father had passed away. He had been fighting cancer for several years, but at the end he died peacefully and among family at his home in the desert, which is probably as much as any of us can hope for. He was one day past his 79th birthday.

He was the rock of Marian’s family, and we’re all going to miss him terribly. Rest in peace, Harry.
