The last time I suggested that blog entries might be less than regular, big ideas kept falling in my lap and Internet access was more available than I thought it would be.

This time, I'm pretty sure I'll be distracted and otherwise engaged in things non-academic. I hope you will be as well.

For the next couple weeks, you're on your own. But then most of you won't be in class.

Happy new year.
