First off, a special thank you to Adriel Hampton and Tim O'Reilly for the kind words via Twitter about my Durable Infection post. That's set off some interesting insights and brought in some new readers. I should offer a welcome to anyone reading over this blog for the first time. For those of you who left comments or sent me your thoughts on the piece, I'd also like to thank you: I'll respond in the next few days and try to give them the attention they deserve.
Because amidst the President arriving in Asheville, I was traveling the opposite direction, to a long-planned mini-vacation in my homeland, the North Carolina coast, where I plan to devour plenty of tasty seafood (including my personal favorite, raw oysters) and relax. Much as a part of me misses the energetic chaos, you have to occasionally set journalism aside, just for a bit, to stay sane in this job.
Posting resumes on Monday. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
