I’M BACK. Actually I got back last night, but rather later than I had hoped as a result of air-travel disruptions attendant upon the Northeast blizzard. My trip out was delayed even more, with less excuse, something I’ll have a lot more to say about later.

I’ve spent a few minutes scrolling down the page, and it’s clear that my guestbloggers did their usual topflight job. Whenever I go away, I get a few grumpy emails from people who’d rather have me blogging, but personally I like the blog better when they’re on the job. Maybe it’s like eating your own cooking . . . .

Anyway, check them out at their home blogs: Ann Althouse, Megan McArdle, Tom Maguire, and Michael Totten.

Regular blogging will resume a bit later.
