Physical Health Break Update

Just a note of deep regret I won't be able to live-blog the SOTU tonight. I haven't missed one here for years, but what are you going to do? It's just a severe mix of asthma and bronchitis and some unexpected medication side-effects that also affected my lungs, making everything worse. The docs want total bedrest and no work until I'm better.

I know it's weird telling total strangers about your health but that's the price of being a 24/7 blogger. I have nowhere to hide when I get sick. So apologies for TMI. But it's nothing that serious and I'll be back as soon as I'm able to breathe right. Meanwhile, the Dish is in the ablest hands. See you soon and many many thanks for the many kind emails. --- Andrew
