I didn't mean to be gone so long! But I was meeting the in-laws . . . planning the wedding . . . time got away from me, I just wasn't reading the news that much, ergo not posting that much. I heard your pleas and I was not unmoved, and yet . . .
But the Madrid bombing's gotten me out of my stupor. So I'm back. You knew I would be.
And happy Saint Patrick's Day, y'all.
