Alas, I'm facing one of those use-it-or-lose-it vacation-day situations here at NPR.
Thus, I'm gone from this blog, returning Tuesday, Aug. 17.
I won't be here for next Tuesday's primaries in Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia and Minnesota. Worse, there will be no ScuttleButton puzzle until Thursday the 19th. And I'll be missing next week's Political Junkie segment on Talk of the Nation, as well as the next podcast. Double sigh.
Please don't forget me. I'll see you on the 17th.
