I wanted to step in just once to say good luck to you all on the new blog. I wish you nothing but the very best.
Some mail to me over the past days suggest that I should have handled the end of CM better, and no doubt you're all right. I just can say that I did what I could - and in consultation with others - what I thought was best.
It pleased me, and did not surprise me, that Ben so graciously committed to making a home for you. I still believe in the idea, and I hope that you, too, will have happy and "miserable" years getting to the root of our problems - for they continue for me, too, darlings.
Finally, my devil spawn child will marry this Saturday, in a gigantic (bank-breaker) ceremony that I am 94% sure to attend, and 100% sure to be drunk at. A new chapter for me personally to go along with yours.
Colleagues, friends, pals, etc.
