You might be wondering why I haven't posted lately. You might think I have nothing to say. That is, those of you who've never met me might think that. In reality, I blame Roger Federer, Serena Williams, the DNC, the RNC, and Dell, because the last two weeks I have been obsessively watching hours and hours of the US Open and the political conventions, leaving me little time to eat, wash, or figure out whom to vote for in tomorrow's DC primary, much less post some palaver. And that's where Dell comes in. I only have 256 MB of RAM. I've somehow managed with that for five years, but my computer is, it seems, dying. And angry. I will fix this situation. In the meantime, I will contemplate Roger's tremendous run at the US Open. And hope that I'll also make a comeback.
