This is the view from my porch:
This isn’t an Andrew Sullivan game to guess where I live. This is the reason I have no power or internet and probably won’t until Monday. So be extra-specially patient if your comments get stuck in the spam filter. Also, please understand that even when my power comes back on, I won’t be responding directly to emails and comments that ask things like “Why Catholicism of all religions?” I know everyone is interested in that question, so I’ll eventually be posting on it here, but I can’t start private dialogues with folks or my head will explode. Merci!
Also, just so you understand how slow the repairs will be, a dialogue with one of my housemates:
Him: I think Pepco might really be trying to deal with this quickly. They got a lot of criticism last summer for how slow they were to restore power.
Me: So they learned that no matter how bad they are, all we can do is complain?
