We will be back tomorrow

Starting this morning, we begin our annual month-long break from this site (we’ll still be active on social media–Facebook and on Twitter and Twitter again). We’ll be back after Labor Day (the Americans’ poor excuse for May Day) at the start of September.  In the meantime, this is a good time to revisit our greatest hits from the last year.
