As I write these words, about 50 percent of our readers are in the eastern time zone of the United States. The rest are distributed across nine other time zones here and abroad. Hello out there!
I’m not sure how much we’ll be blogging in the course of the next 24 hours (Our Girl and I are both wrestling with prose-for-money deadlines), but I put up a lot of fresh stuff on Saturday and Sunday that you may not have seen, and I’ll also try to post something worth reading between now and the end of the day. In the meantime, thanks for your forbearance.
