Sorry, everyone, about being off the Internet for so long, but since I won, in my mind, the Mega Millions jackpot last week, I can't seem to muster-up the motivation to post. Also, I was out of the country and not incredibly Web-accessible, so there was that as well. I'll try to figure out what's going on in the world from my Twitter feed and from The Atlantic.com website, and post a little later. Also, for those mega millions of you who subscribe to my RSS feed, my apologizes; someone seems to have hacked into it and is sending out, of all things, old posts of mine. I've been assured that The Atlantic's Impossible Mission Force is working to correct the problem.
