The lovely Nina and I are off to Vienna this evening, where our daughter is due to give birth to our first grandson. Things may be a little quiet around here until we get back, in early August — though I expect I’ll put up a post or two from over there.
If my tone seems a tad subdued regarding some of our more frequent topics, it’s probably because I don’t want to get arrested. (Last I heard, Austria had no First Amendment, and a lot of increasingly irritated voices that need tamping down.)
Feel free to chat amongst yourselves till I get back.
