Just a couple of housekeeping notes:
* Astute observers of the Whatever will note that the band of color on the left side of the page, which was apparently loathed by many, has been replaced by something a bit more monochromatic but which, I must admit, is at least slightly easier on the eyes. See? I listen.
* Also, now that I’m back at home I’ve caught up with all the e-mail that has come in over the last several days, but there remains the possibility that something might have slipped through the cracks. If you’ve sent me e-mail for which you’re expecting a reply and you don’t have said reply by close of business today, go ahead and shoot me another e-mail.
