I'll be spending the next few days redesigning this site and putting a new publishing system under the hood. My hope is that the process will be completely invisible on your end until the relaunch next Monday, but given the whole man-plans-God-laughs nature of these sorts of projects, I thought I'd better give everybody a heads up. So if things occasionally look a little, well, strange around here between now and then, please know that it's just another case of vast planning meeting half-vast execution, and that things should be back to normal shortly. Thanks, as always, for your patience.

UPDATE: Did I say completely invisible on your end? Well, that's not really true; certain functions, most notably trackbacks and the site search, will have to be disabled during the re-engineering process. Sorry for any inconvenience, and I'll try to have everything working again as soon as possible.

Due to the endless advance of comment spam (and my own unwillingness and/or inability to deal with it), I've temporarily disabled the comments function here on the blog. Look for comments -- as well as regular posting -- to return in the near future.

In the meantime, my e-mail address is on the right....

God, it's only been three weeks, and I've already just about forgotten how to do this.

Let's see now....

You start with a bit of context, right? Something along the lines of, "I had a lot to say about the Spanish elections, but, as is so often the case, Kevin Drum has beaten me to the punch." Then, if I'm not mistaken, you link to the source. And, finally, you close with the Grace Note:

"POSTSCRIPT: While I was away, the friendly folks at Washington Monthly magazine recognized a painful truth that many of us have suspected for a long time now: All bloggers are, indeed, equal, but some are a hell of a lot more equal than others. Congratulations, Kevin!"

...

Okay, not great. But it's a start. And who knows? Maybe, when I've reached my full, Calpundit-like potential, these people will hire me to do a high-profile in-house blog. Take that, Mr. Drum!

Everybody's gotta have a dream, you know....

The two week blog break didn't give me quite enough time to finish the book, so it's now officially become ... a three week blog break. The site will return next Monday, whether I've completed the project or not.

Thanks for your patience.

As regular readers know, I'm in the middle of a short blog break, but I did want to take a moment this morning to congratulate John Kerry, his staff, and all his supporters. You earned this nomination the old-fashioned way, folks -- with tenacity, smarts, and more than a little courage. (And anybody who wants to quibble with that that last word needs to show me the second mortgage they took out on their house at a moment when most of us would have played it safe....)

Bill Clinton once famously said that there's nothing wrong with America that we can't fix with what's right with America. That's as true today as it was then. And once again, we Democrats are the ones being called upon to do the repairs.

Let's get to work.

John Kerry for President

POSTSCRIPT: As they say on the official blog, STAND WITH JOHN KERRY! Contribute Now! & Join the Fight.
