Distance

Well, a garden, actually, but the same idea. I'll be back after Labor Day, and a brief honeymoon. Once again, I've been more than lucky to persuade four of my favorite bloggers to fill in for me. They are Hilary Bok, aka Hilzoy of Obsidian Wings; Jamie Kirchick of TNR; my friend Steve Clemons of the Washington Note; and Greg Djerejian of Belgravia Dispatch. They don't agree on everything, especially foreign policy, which should make for some fun. In the new year - by which I mean September (yes, I'm still a grad student in my soul) - we'll launch the Best Movie Line Ever poll. In the meantime, wish me luck. I'll see you on the other side of matrimony. And be nice to our guests.
