Hey all, sorry that I forgot to put up a placeholder post a few weeks back explaining that I wasn’t going to be posting for a while. The usual explanations. It’s that time of year in the academic calendar, and I’ve been doing a bit of traveling and giving a few talks. My available blogging time has been taken up editing the Middle East Channel (to which I recently donated my "banner" spot, in the spirit of the greater good). The six (!) major reports and articles I’ve got coming out in the next couple of months will soon give y’all an idea of how I’ve been spending the rest of my time. While I may throw up the occasional post, regular blogging probably won’t resume until June. And then I’ll be back!
