We’re heading into a bit of a slump for regular blog posts. Matt’s defending his PhD dissertation this coming Friday, and has, strangely, decided to prioritize that over blogging. Go figure. Anyway, he’ll be laying low until that beast has been slain. Meanwhile, I’m getting ready for a couple of months of field work starting next week, during which time my internet access will be intermittent and bandwidth challenged, at best. The weekly Spatial Forces Index will be one casualty of our schedules, at least for the next couple of weeks. I’ve tried to be religious about getting it out every Monday for the last three months, but for now, it’s got to fall by the wayside while we take care of other committments.
