I’m already de facto on hiatus from blogging, so I might as well come out and say it: I’m not going to be writing much, if anything, on the Duck for a bit longer.

Our regular readers may have noticed my lack of posting lately, and that I haven’t contributed anything of substance in an even longer period of time.

The short explanation: I’m about midway through my junior-faculty leave, and I’m swamped with work. My book is due on January 15th, and, being my normal self, I’ve got a lot of other stuff I need to finish. So thanks to the rest of the team–particularly Rodger and Peter–for keeping things afloat.

I promise I’ll return to serious posting by late January.
