Catching Up Here

Itís amazing how quickly a guy can get behind on the news. I spent the weekend up in Seattle visiting some writer friends and being generally unplugged from whateverís going on in the world. Iím not completely out of it like I was when I got home from North Africa, but thereís this vague sense of hmm thatís enough to keep from me from mouthing off at the moment. Your regularly scheduled programming will resume shortly.
