I'll be gone the rest of this week and all of next week. I might chime in on Twitter from time to time @BruceAllen but for at least part … Continue reading You’re On Your Own, Kids.

I'm under the weather here for another day, but well enough for a little shameless self-promotion, as BSMW got a nice mention, and I'm quoted in this Mike Tanier column in The New York Times. Talking Trash, Just to Be Heard I hope to be back with regular links for tomorrow.
