I warned you about this last week.
I am still posting, but there will be little original content in this space during the next two weeks of my self-imposed, self-defined, blog sabbatical.
Off course, it would be a cheap/lazy trick, a pathetic excuse for a post, to take advantage of the human tendency to adore small animals….
And use that to distract readers from this space’s current lack of socially significant and/or politically provocative content…
…or to  exploit my readers’ fidelity and patience…
…by assuming y’all will hang around for the return of the usual snark insightful, witty and erudite commentary…
…which you have come to expect from this space. 
Really – this is it for now.

May you never tire of baby sloth pictures;
May baby belugas do in a pinch;
May tiny birds preen the cockles of your heart;
…and may the hijinks ensue.
Thanks for stopping by.

 No footnotes yet. Move along.
 Footnotes – you’re also expecting footnotes.
