Comments on this site have been turned off temporarily to stymie the spam-bots who want to colonize the conversation. If you are a human, one of those rare humans who also reads and wants to say something cogent, please send me an email. For now, the site’s front page features a few of my favorite posts. Keep the faith — like Walter Benjamin’s flaneur, I will return.
