Grist staff takes semiannual, semi-deserved break; readers mourn

While most of you have already trundled out the grill and scooped the beetles out of your pool, Grist staffers haven’t yet tasted summer. In fact, we’ve been perched on stools at the pun assembly line for the last six months — and our backs are starting to ache. So we hereby announce that we’re taking a two-week break. We’ll be back in your inbox on July 11, but in the meantime, don’t despair: Like any self-respecting online environmental magazine, we have a blog! And like any blog, this one stops for no tan. Be sure to check out Gristmill while we’re gone.
