No, the blog isn't going on hiatus (I just took it off hiatus after all) but posting could be spotty for the next few weeks due to business/personal travel.
Until then, I'll try to keep abreast of things on my Diigo page so, if you're interested I'll be trying to keep that going.

Next they'll be demanding we take off our underwear. - Just you wait. The TSA will overreact to this in time.
Today's election tempest in a teapot. - The problem that Obama has here is that he's spent the last few months trying desperately to convince anyone that the "wealthy" (read: those making over $100K/yr) are somehow un-American.
Are Airfares getting more expensive? The answer might surprise you.
This is a good trip report. - Keep it in mind because I'm going to try a similar trip report on a rather mundane business trip....in coach. Not because you don't know it by now, but b/c I think it will be funny to see the stark differences.
