Apologies for the sudden dead air, but I've been swamped with dissertation and job-related activities. I'll try to update at least once each week over the next few months, but I can't make any promises.
Quick note while I'm here: everybody seems to be wondering if yesterday's election results will bring us compromise or gridlock for the next two years. If it's the former, education might be a logical starting point . . . I can't think of another major issue where the parties are closer to agreeing.
