A wise reader has advised me to put up something like this here at W4, and I am taking his advice. My unusual absence last week was the result of an out-of-town death in the family that required some travel, and things are still settling down from that. It seems that my own life will return to normal gradually at this point, but matters relating to last week's events are still occupying my thoughts and time somewhat.
