Anyone who checks regularly will have noticed I’m not posting at all this year.
I may resume sometime before the November 2011 elections, but don’t hold your breath.

My personal health problems have slowed me down considerably since I was last a post-grad student, and now I don’t have the necessary stamina or mental energy to keep up with a lot of issues & write about them.

Meanwhile, check out the blogs in my blogroll, most of my best-regarded are there and they hold a few of my all-time favourite writers (yes, Handmirror, I’m looking at you.)
