Mea culpa

OK, I know I haven't been very active here lately. I've been traveling - Ecuador, Netherlands, and am about to disappear into the Bahamas on field work (I love my job!).

If you are one of the few who like what I have to say, my apologies. I'll get back to it. Soon. (Note to self: "Don't make a liar out of me").

In the meantime, visit my favorite blogger, Tom Degan (that's Tom on the left, no irony intended). He's much more regular than me, always has something to say, and says it with a sublime mixture of humor, outrage and finesse.

Quote of the Day II

"Neither life nor history is an enterprise for those who seek simplicity and consistency."
-- Jared Diamond

Now, this is something Sarah Palin and all of her tea bagger contingent will never understand.

Quote of the Day

We are living in an increasingly individualistic, over-privatized, fragmented society, and it's not going to get any better any time soon.
