My goodness, a lot has happened since March 2007, no? In no particular order:
In personal news, I have been carving out a web design/communications niche for myself in the private sector. In other words, I have begun to use my mad writing/blogger skillz for the forces of eeeeeevil. (More evil than the school choice movement? -ed. Yes, kids, even more dastardly than that scoundrel Clint Bolick, who last I checked was suing anything even remotely anti-choice that twitches.)
