Half-Bakered will be on hiatus until October 7th.

Work has been intense the past few days and the coming week I expect to be much worse. I am coming home without the energy to do anything but surf and read, then go to bed early.

See you then.

Until next time.

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.
