Excuses.

Sorry about the absence. I was away from the machine for a little while. Specifically, I was giving this talk in Ottawa. Difficult subjects, and the intent, as always, is to open a conversation, not to deliver the definitive answer. Of course, since I’m someone opinionated enough to have a blog, my questions can sometimes sound like answers, but that doesn’t mean they should be read that way. So, if you think I’m wrong, let me know, and let’s move it along. It wouldn’t be the first time.

Another consequence of absence and derilection of duty is that I’ve been getting a lot of reports on what’s going on in Haiti but not reporting it myself. Take a look at Tom Griffin’s human rights report, the most comprehensive to date.

Last, a follow-up to the campus stuff from the previous blog post: take a look at the video, it’s available in streaming format.

I guess Bush got inagurated and gave a speech or something too.
