I have a significant household weekend with going to relatives lined up.  Unless anything massive comes up, I am outta right here ’til Sunday, when I will be occupied with behind-the-scenes investigation and writing, a.k.a. “sausage-producing.”
That implies I will not get to any news recommendations and anticipate a delay in comment moderation.
To anybody dissatisfied with the service, I will cheerfully offer a complete refund.
