Even though there are a couple of things I am eager to blog about (and disagree with), particularly regarding some of the recommendations put out by the Center for Strategic and International Studies today, I am containing myself (a new experience) and even extending my hiatus from blogging another day or two while I finish up an article and try to get some real work done.

Also, I think it is helpful both for my own thinking and for the blog as well to take a step back periodically and change the view.

Brian will continue to post on his regular schedule. I, however, will be back on Wednesday or Thursday.

See you then.
