Mucho apologies

There's no way around it; the facts must be faced. The posting has been mighty thin on this site the past week or so. Courts of inquiry have been convened, research committees formed.

And the answer seems to be -- as strange as it seems -- that book/daddy has started a new, for-real, bank account-filling, full-time job. The shackles are back on; his time is not his own. He sends his regrets.

Just how serious this job actually is becomes plain once book/daddy explains that he's headed for LA tomorrow for several days on a business trip involving hotels and media conferences and ice in highball drinks. This means, alas, the website will continue to suffer from neglect. Flowers and condolences are currently being accepted. Charitable donations, too.

Meanwhile, the whole blogging deal is being re-worked, re-considered. Negotiations continue.

And more about the job will appear here -- anon.
