Sincere apologies for my two weeks of silence. By now you are probably thinking alien abduction or something like that. The truth is that I have been out of the country.

Even more truth is that I carefully prepared a column for July 20, explaining why there would be no column on July 27 — and then forgot to send it! A mind is a terrible thing to lose.
