Illness, intermittent wi-fi access, a dismaying decline in public questions, and a variety of personal distractions have very recently prevented me from posting with the quality and consistency to which you have grown accustomed.
But never fear, dear readers! My head is cool, I'm currently downloading an entire Japanese anime, I'm thinking clearly, and I've decided that if I need to, I'll make up a few questions of my own. Also, the end of the Old School series will let me finish off at long last the valuable, verbose ghost of William James in short order, so I'll be starting a new series or two, announcements to follow.
Thank you for your continuing interest, and your comments.
