[Update: public service announcement to all those googling 'et and others': the phrase you're looking for is 'et al'. Have a nice day.]
I haven't had time to blog much of late, and that's about to get even worse, as I'll be away in the U.S. till early April. There's plenty to read elsewhere, of course, as the latest Philosophers' Carnival demonstrates. But I like to keep this site active, so I've lined up a couple of guest contributors for while I'm away. I'll let them introduce themselves when they're ready...
In the meantime, any readers are welcome to use this post as an "open thread", and comment on whatever topic happens to be interesting you at present.
P.S. if you're not about to rush off overseas, do consider writing something for the upcoming Citizens' Symposium on free speech! The deadline is March 24.
