Temporary Service Disruption

Posting will be spotty and lighter than normal for the next five days, as I watch the full repeat of PBS's great series, "The Civil War." I missed most of it the first time around, and won't make that mistake this time.

Yes, the series is burdened by the politics of Ken Burns and PBS, but a more absorbing, more comprehensive lesson in this most crucial of American turning points won't be found anywhere else. As George Will puts it, "If a greater use of television has been made, I haven't seen it."

Until next time.
