The takehome message is that if you're expecting a regular monologue here, you'd be wrong. I'll try to post as often as needed, but I can't say I'm likely to be as prompt about responding to email. Don't take it personally if I don't answer you immediately.
P.S. (added 5/30). Posting will continue to this blog - I'm not taking the whole summer off from posting as some have misinterpreted. It is just that my posting will probably be limited to significant events rather than the interspersed interesting observations that have no practical bearing on the immediate PERS issues. I hope this clarifies any confusion.
