There are two good ways to tell if someone actually doesn’t know me very well. First, they refer to me as “Alex.” Second, they are unaware that I have headed off to the waters near Boston, MA for a few days with family and loved ones. I’ll be back here on the 29th, though you might be able to spot me between now and then on Twitter (@alexanderrusso). See you soon!
