As you've probably noticed, this page has been having some technical difficulties. I was too swamped last week to bother tinkering; and when I tried a quick fix yesterday, I broke the whole website.
Everything should be working now. Thanks to everyone who e-mailed. To be honest, I don't know what happened. I chose Blogger because it's easy, because I don't know how to code my own website and it's not among my priorities to learn — and in this case, the only explanation I can offer is that I don't know what broke, I don't know how I made it worse, and I don't know how I fixed it.
Anyway. It seems to be straightened out, so I'll be back with a new column tomorrow. Thanks again to everyone who e-mailed — both those who offered HTML tips and those who just noted my absence. I appreciate it.
