First of all:

Sorry for the server difficulties. I’ve been grappling with them too. In fact, if any of my posts today struck you as less than cogent or insightful, let’s go ahead and blame the servers.

That’s all for me today. But as I head for the door, I just wanted to ask you fine folks to donate one last time—your dollars really do matter at a small, high-quality magazine like the Monthly, and we appreciate each and every contribution.

Until next time.
