I'll be out of town for the next few days, returning on Monday. Suzy Khimm will be guest blogging in my absence, and who knows — one or two others might pop in too. You never know. Catblogging, of course, will continue on schedule. And by the way: it would be great if you guys could get this whole McChrystal thing cleared up before I get back. And that oil spill thing too. OK?
