... and you won't be disappointed!
The busiest part of my year starts now. It runs for the next 10 days or so. I will blog as often as I can, but that may not amount to very much.
I have done some serious work on the sidebar lately. Please explore it if you have time to do so. There's plenty of good reading there, from the likes of Manuel Valenzuela, Robert Parry, Robert Fisk, Robert Koehler, and of course Ernest Partridge and his friends at The Crisis Papers.
You may feel compelled to wish me luck and/or to point me at stories that are too good to miss; if you wish to do any of these things, please leave a comment for me on this thread. Lowly and nearly frozen indeed...
Expect normal service to resume around the middle of May.
