Hi, folks! If some of you regulars and others think you’ve noticed a little less activity than usual on RealityChek over the last week — you’re right! I’ve been working on a dying computer recently, and it’s made posting and especially answering correspondence difficult.

The good news is that I’ve now got a replacement and am back at full strength! I’m looking forward very much to plunging back into the news and to re-engaging with all of you who have been kind enough to share your thoughts. All non-spam-type comments — even the snarky ones — are greatly appreciated, as is your interest in this blog and the issues it covers. See you tomorrow morning!
