Head’s Up: Head’s down

Not that I've been particularly consistent these days with my postings here anyway, but I suspect I will be even less so in the coming weeks. It's getting down to the wire for our departure and there's much to do. I'm making a wedding cake this week for dear friends (picture to follow for sure, if it all turns out OK). Then I'm going to be celebrating another wedding with family on the east coast, then trodding the streets of NYC looking for housing, then packing, then moving, etc. etc. If you happen to live in NYC and you have good apartment-hunting tips that you'd be willing to share, please send them my way.

In the meantime, check out Jason's post about the Eldred vs. Ashcroft oral arguments. Also pb's post about Senator Byrd's speeches in Washington regarding a potential war with Iraq. I've been thinking a lot about this one and wish I had some time to write about it. And finally, for no particular reason except people sometimes like to know this, I'm re-reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. So very good. It tempts me to do nothing but read all day.
