Following in JoAnne's footsteps, I've been in the midst of arguably my most exhausting bout of insane traveling ever -- nine different stops over the course of less than a month, two of which involved two talks in one day! And one of which was at my old Philadelphia stomping grounds, where the people of the great-but-occasionally-confused state of Pennsylvania had recently rid themselves of the creepy menace that is Rick Santorum. (Actually, Michael, it's a great-but-occasionally-confused commonwealth, but you're a Francophone carpetbagger so that's okay.) And where I was greeted, upon driving out of the airport, by a lovely billboard proclaiming Santorum is Good for Senate (sic). With snappy slogans like that one, perched precariously at the grammatical cutting edge, I can't imagine how he lost. I'm looking forward to settling back down to bucolic LA and churning out the high-quality blogging that CV readers expect. In the meantime, a couple of links distinguished by the fact that they link to us!
We have received our first (as far as I know) link from a bona-fide rock star -- Brian May of Queen, who as we all know has legitimate astrophysical roots. May also has a book coming out that certainly looks good, although I haven't seen it up close myself.
We should just start a separate blog, and have every post on each consist of links to the other site. Just for balance, one link that doesn't link to us:
