First, I want to apologize to the folks whose comments were hung up in comment moderation purgatory, I have not been very attentive to this blog. I have no excuse for much of the summer. Lately, however, I have been trying to keep up with young'uns learning about China, qualified immunity, the Internet of Things, Wuthering Heights, Anna Karenina, The Grapes of Wrath, excerpts from the Aeneid, and a bunch of Norse mythology. I will do my best to keep the post free of Ragnarok references.
