    ...piece. And glad to see you back with us after such a long hiatus. (I still link people to your emergency series.)

      have you thought about publishing that thing, as a .pdf or otherwise? i'm considering printing the whole series out.

        Felt guilty about it plenty of times, even planned on working on it during my 3-week, 4500-mile driving-around-the-West vacation this summer.  (Didn't happen, most of the time I was lucky if I had the energy to upload that day's photos to Flickr before crashing for the night.)

        I'm almost caught up on home improvement and repair projects, so I'll put this back on the list.  Feel free to harass me until I deliver.

      I've been lurking and keeping up with the goings-on, just haven't been moved to toss a Diary into the raging torrent of mediocrity rushing past.

      I think there's a definite disconnect in the way a solid majority of Democratic office-holders and candidates treats individual donors.  Respect for your supporters means saying thank you when they help you out, and it means engaging with them as individuals instead of asking for yet more money with Standard Reply Number Six from the form-letter generator.

      I continue to be amazed at how many people have read the emergency-preparedness series.  I'm still interested in developing it into a book, but between time/energy constraints and not knowing where to start it hasn't happened yet.
