...my typical post will have to again be deferred. My cold came back, I'm in another city and it's my birthday to boot, so I'm going to postpone it for a few, as I have before.
Fear not, however. The great oriental curse has come upon us! We live in interesting times, and you certainly don't need me to entertain, engross and horrify you. I'm sure you'll be able to get by, for now.
