My excuse for lack of comment on the burning issues of the day? Um, I’m in Virginia, where there are… no newspapers? No computers? Distracting swarms of giant killer bees? I don’t suppose any of those seem that convincing. UVa is very pleasant, though. Apparently Edgar Allen Poe once moped here.
I think that this is my favorite story of the week.
(Off now for some southern hospitality. I am assuming that someone around here will know how to make a mint julep.)
