Right, Then

Now that all the fuss is over, it’s time to relax a little. The lovely Nina and I will be here in the heart of Europe for another week or so, and may do a little touring around. After that is August, when this blog traditionally goes mostly silent for a summer break.

I’m sure the world will continue going to hell in all the usual ways, and the nation will continue to pull apart along its unbridgeable fault-lines. I will probably put up a post now and then, but a little unplugging and R&R is in order, I think.

Thank you all as always, and thank you especially for all your happy messages about the birth of little Liam! I feel richly blessed.

    Suppose we’ll just have to get our entertainment from the usual suspects:

    The FBI is said to be investigating yet another suspected hack of a Democratic Party organization, this time of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that raises funds for Democrats running for the House of Representatives.


    Have fun though!

  4. JK,

    Before I embark on a possibly very difficult effort to learn what a raccoon has to say, could you give me a hint as to why I should bother? Also, what sorts of animals am I likely to encounter in the commentary?

    JK, seems like Europe’s underbelly just got even more vulnerable. Islam intends to take Europe this time around.
