Townblog is off on a much-needed vacation. We'll be back sometime in the second week of August.
In the meantime, feel free to read stuff from last August, picking from the following categories of Townblog content:
- Attempted Humor: a sneek peak at Keith Richards' autobiography
- Whiney-Pants Liberal Screeds: our failing infrastructure
- Cute and Dangerous Pictures of the Kids: Sam's first beer
- Pop Culture Fascination Disguised as Thoughtfulness: When Bad Things Happen to Good Celebrities
(Oh, and if you feel like I'm avoiding The Savage Detectives, I am. This was due to an unexpected need to watch absolutely all of the first season of Mad Men in the shortest time possible, which meant little reading in the past couple weeks. Barrack Obama and Naomi Klein are going on vacation with me, but I'll return to the second half of The Savage Detectives and another Bolano book, Nazi Literature in the Americas, once home again. It's a paperbacks vs. hardcovers thing...)
