Programming note: I'm going to be in a car and en route to Dallas for just about the next 16 hours, so I won't have anything more posted here until about 10 a.m. Saturday morning. But I will have a couple of longer pieces that you can look forward to, and I will also be fielding questions — of all kinds! — on Twitter for an hour or two this afternoon, in case you're worried or curious about something or anything. Please do feel free to ask me anything.
