Better make this official. Lots of people take August vacations. I didn't get to. However, as you can obviously see, things around here are grinding to a halt. And I'm exhausted. So I'll be taking a leave of absence for a couple of months, at least, say, until the upcoming semester is halfway through. I may poke my nose in here and there, and Jeremy, of course, may be posting his dispatches, but basically, after more than a year of almost daily blogging, I need a f'n break.

Well deserved! Try and remember what it all must have been like before people spent 10 hours a day reading and tapping at these glowing bit-boxes...

We'll miss your insight Finnegan. Come back stronger than ever. Oh, and looking forward to meeting you in "real" life when you get back to New Haven--

I clicked on comments with the intention of leaving a clever, single word comment: "Pussy." Much to my chagrin, anonymous beat me to the punch. Fuck him and may he burn in hell forever. Don't you agree, Finnegan? Are you still in LA, you fucking pussy?

Technically, yes, for another week, but I'm locked inside Walmart style until my return flight.

What shall the political world do without its lawgiver?

Anarchy baby! It's what I've been pushing for all along.

Like Michael Jordan, Finnegan will come back shaky at first and wear #45, then when he switched back to #23, he'll be almost as good as he was before, though some of his success will be due to refs giving him all the calls.
