(Life's been hectic.) Regular posting should resume shortly. Hopefully tomorrow, since that's the last day for submissions to the upcoming carnival of citizens.
N.B. We need a host for the third edition. Anyone interested? The only requirement is that you support its essential "deliberative" vision, as set out in the above linked post. I'm open to any suggested dates (late Dec / early January?), optional topical theme, whatever you think would work best.
I think it'd be a tragedy if the carnival died out so soon. If you agree, do get in touch. (See sidebar for email address.)
The Philosophers' Carnival is coming up too, courtesy of Thom Brooks. Submit a post here.
