I’ll be taking a break this week, up through next Monday, while doing some traveling with the family. With any luck, we’ll see the total eclipse a week from now, unless the usual amateur astronomer’s luck is working, in which case we’ll see hail the size of canned hams coming down instead. So there’s that to look forward to.
Blogging topics will pile up until then; I’ll keep a list and work through it in order of inspiration. If there are any humungous events this week, I’ll come out of vacation mode, but otherwise, I’ll see everyone in a week!
Update: yes, I just saw the President’s comment on Twitter about Merck and Ken Frazier. My feelings about Trump are on record. The experience of having him in office have only strengthened my views. I also have come to believe that reacting to every his every splenetic blast will shorten my life, while simultaneously making it feel far longer (and not in a good way). So I’m letting this one go past. I’m on vacation, dang it all.
