Sorry for the lack of posts lately at the blog as I am now officially on vacation (!). This is really the first really extended vacation time I've taken away from my newspaper as I plan to use up a very big backlog of vacation days owed to me. And even after I use them I'll still have plenty left over. That's what happens when you work like a dog and don't take your vacation time.
Anyway, I have been busy swatting mosquitoes and watching World Series of Poker coverage on the Internet, and I went to the horse races last night and actually won around five bucks. I plan to get around to ranting about the latest happenings, eventually.
