Today we head out for a little cabin in the big woods. We will have no internet connection, no cell phone reception, no cable television, and no newspapers. If we survive, we will crawl out of the wilderness like Rip Van Winkle, if Rip Van Winkle only slept for five days. Still, we have been looking forward to this for a long time. That does mean that I won’t be doing any blogging for the rest of the week.
If we can avoid dying of exposure or getting eaten by wild animals, I’ll be back the first of July. In the meantime, if something happens in the world that you think I would normally blog about–for example, if the Supremes rule on Obamacare–please make a comment to that effect here and discuss as you think appropriate.
If all goes well, I’ll be posting again on July 2. By then I’ll probably be grateful again for the blessings of civilization, technology, and the information age. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy being without them.
[Updated by tODD: Actually, at the risk of presuming on our good host’s hospitality, I’m going to create at least one new post for the discussion of the Supreme Court ruling in Arizona v. United States, as I assume that’s one topic we’ll want to discuss here, and it might keep discussion a bit tidier than having it all in one thread. And, come Thursday, I’ll set up another one specifically for the Supreme Court ruling on the health care law.Feel free to discuss other matters here, or to propose topics we could discuss in separate posts this week. I’ll do my best to create posts on topics that seem of general interest. I know I’m often wrong about everything you hold dear, but I’ll try to be impartial here — at least, in the creation of discussion posts. I just don’t want us all trying to discuss everything in one thread for four days. I know how whiny you guys can get when you’re not getting your Cranach fix.]
