I'm too busy for a real post, but I have a few on the burner. Until then, there are a couple of other blogs that you should really read. First is a 'bike blog' that where the poster isn't afraid to deviate from bikes, and he seems to know what he's talking about. He has a great, unbiased look at some politics (OK, maybe there's bias, but I agreed with him, therefore there is no bias). Go here.
The other blog has a great description of autumn. You should read it, it is one of the best nature essays I have read in awhile. Go here.
I'll be back when my dissertation finishes writing itself. While I have been tremendously pleased with my new Mac, it has not helped my dissertation progress any faster. Evidently the user is still lazy.
