After a long pause, owing largely to returning from a productive sabbatical to a full schedule, I’m happy to be able to show off the new look of the blog space. It was designed by Steven Plane. I hope to have more regular contributions posted again soon. If Roland Emmerich is right, there’s only a little over 3 years left before it’s all moot anyway. 2012 is right around the corner. At least it is in my neighborhood. On the other hand, it’s already The Day after Tomorrow, and we’re still here. I suspect we will be after Dec. 21, 2012, as well.
