After getting double-teamed by the unholy alliance of my son’s birthday party and a work flareup, I’ve been negligent in keeping up with my already laid-back blogging schedule. The result is a backlog of topics, not to mention juicy, share-worthy links.

Finally, on a more serious health care tack: this must-read article from the September Atlantic.
