Blogus Interruptus

The obvious lack of new posts on this blog is the result of an unholy trinity of outside forces. For one thing, I have an impending deadline for my doctoral dissertation, so lots of spare time has been sent on this and frankly, the last thing I want to do of an evening is continue ...
