First, I'm hereby imposing a moratorium on partisan political blogging for the rest of November. This will only be lifted in the case of extreme circumstances, such as terrorist attack, declarations of war, or other important news (such as the capture of UBL). Self-censorship? Yes. For the good of the group.
Secondly, I'd like to apologize for being a jerk in the comment box. I'm sorry, friends. Understand, I don't apologize or back down from the content of my arguments, because I still stand by them. But there's no need to bring sarcasm into it. My bad.
That is all.
We will now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging.
