Colonial-Era Blogging

By Jeffrey Goldberg

My apologies for not blogging more; I'm on a school camping trip with my youngest child, and we're staying at a place called the Claude Moore Colonial Farm and dressing like colonial-era farmers (and no, not for one million dollars will I post a picture of me in my colonial-era puffy shirt) and because it's supposed to be 1771 here, we're not allowed to use modern devices of any sort (including, alas, toilets, which at least allowed me to tell one lobbyist-parent this morning to go shit in the woods), and so I'm not blogging, except for right now, secretly. The wireless connection is fine here, perhaps because of (or in spite of) our location, about four hundred yards from the CIA perimeter fence. I'll be back in 2010 tomorrow.
