Thank you for a wonderful week –we couldn't have done it without your e-mails. I'd like to thank my co-under-blogger, Chis Bodenner aka Lord of the Mental Health Break, who obsessively mines culture blogs for the Dish and keeps us abreast any late-breaking internet memes. Our guest bloggers also deserve sincere thanks as they have done a superb job. Please patronize their blogs often: Richard Florida, Richard Posner, and Lane Wallace can all be found on the Atlantic Correspondents page. Clicking on their names above will take you to their individual blogs.

I should also point out that Andrew was wrong: the world didn't explode while he was away. A first.

He should be back soon.
