For two days now, I've had no internet access at home because of problems with the cable. I can't even get through to TimeWarner customer service, so I'm sure there are many, many New Yorkers on the line, most of whom are much better at telling people off than I am.
Anyway, to my personal friends and family: if I don't answer emails this weekend, it's because I can't get to them.
Blogging may be light or non-existent.
** HAPPY THOUGHT REQUESTS **
For those of you who remember the really great blog "Matthew in Beirut," which is now defunct because of work-related security concerns, please keep the author and his family in your prayers because they are still in Beirut.
And, just because I'm selfish that way, I could also use happy thoughts right now.
