Ingrid and I are going to be of town for a few days for the holiday weekend. Our neighbors will be looking after our apartment and our cats, but I may be too busy to look after the blog much. I'll check in to make sure there's no horrible trolling, and I'll post a piece or two and reply to comments if I have time; but if you don't see me back here until Tuesday or Wednesday, don't be surprised.
In the meantime, consider this both an open thread and a shameless self-promotion spot. If you have a blog and want to link to a post you've done -- or if you're doing something neat and want to tell us about it -- go ahead and do it here. Obvious plugs for commercial products will be deleted, but if you have a book or a show or an art project or something, let us know about it.
So talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic. "Firefly" is neither a fire nor a fly. Discuss. Have a happy Labor Day, think kind thoughts about the labor movement, and I'll see y'all when I get back!
