Your humble blogger was all prepared to be diligent, posting even while on a brief vacation.  However, after three days in a spectacular Europeal locale that will go unnamed oh, I'll fess up, I'm in Florence, I'm afraid that I've eaten too much fabulous pasta to give a damn about blogging Eurosclerosis has overtaken my Yankee work ethic. 

Your humble blogger was all prepared to be diligent, posting even while on a brief vacation.  However, after three days in a spectacular Europeal locale that will go unnamed oh, I’ll fess up, I’m in Florence, I’m afraid that I’ve eaten too much fabulous pasta to give a damn about blogging Eurosclerosis has overtaken my Yankee work ethic. 

Active blogging will resume on Thursday.  In the meantime, commenters are heartily encouraged to suggest future blogging topics.  I’m well aware that I’ve harped a bit on macroeconomic imbalances, sanctions and zombies as of late.  I’d be happy to blog about other trouble spots (Kyrgyzstan, Thailand) other trends (Facebook overtaking Google), events (criminals going free) or whatnot.

But you’ll have to take the zombies away from my cold, undead hands — got it? 

Ciao!!
