Just a short apology here about getting back to the social justice thread (I haven’t forgotten  it) and gaps in the podcast (ditto).  I was poised to produce on both fronts this weekend until Coast to Coast AM called. That invitation, coupled with the fact that I have grades due Monday and Thursday (I’m currently doing some adjunct teaching) have created the perfect storm.  I’ve been at the grading for about 20 hours this weekend, and am almost done. (I squeezed in some website stuff for the show, too). Now I need to prepare some things for the show and go back to the normal chaos of preparing for Future Congress 2 and (of course) putting a little time into my novel’s sequel. I should be back to “normal” after the show Thursday night and produce some posts and the next podcast.
