So — to borrow Scott's phrase — there's a lot happening in pre-production around here. Babies, weddings, houses, and puppies. It's crazy. Which is why you might have noticed (please say you have) that we've been a little blog-laxed lately. (Blog-Lax — our new sedative!) However, I'm newly committed (as well as engaged) — and we've got a familiar Fairy Blogfather who's stepped in to help! Tom Regan — you know and love him from NPR's News Blog — is giving us the benefit of his years of expertise. True story: before Tom was here at NPR, I read his Terrorism and Security blog for The Christian-Science Monitor every darn day and never gave him credit for my smartitude in meetings. Better late than never. Thanks, Tom!

The arguement on air right now is exactly why we needed Title Nine. Older Boomer women never had the chance to play team sports and didn't learn that no matter how much effort and well you play the game, you still might lose. They look like poor losers. Buck up, Ladies!
