A Note About The Redesign

Hello, and welcome to the new iteration of Thanks so much for dropping by.  Hopefully, you’ll find the new place faster and easier to navigate. We like it, since it helps us better trumpet all the pieces and posts that we publish. The biggest change that you'll see is on our homepage.

Of course, we want to know how the site is treating you. Please let us know in the comments below, or via e-mail. We’re paying close attention to your feedback and have a team of techies spraying virtual cans of Raid on the many bugs that now populate the site.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for taking the tour.
