I have several meaty posts in the works that should be finished soon as well as a short piece for another website that I will link to when it is up.
Moreover, I need to answer the last comment ( and subsequent posting) from Curtis
of Phatic Communion
who is now taunting me as a closet neo-Platonist
and the one from Dan
( whom I'd thought we'd lost to strong drink and the subtle pleasures of graduate school).
