Greetings from jury duty in miserable and blighted lovely Kent, Washington. I’m writing this on a dinky little laptop, using glacially slow (but free!) wi-fi here at the Regional Justice Center. I’m cut off from my usual workflow and, most importantly, my RSS feeds. So I have no idea what’s going on out in the world.

To boot, at any moment my number could come up and I could be called away to determine some poor schlub’s guilt or innocence.

So … posting will be light today.
