We received a few notes that the blog has not been as up-to-date as usual over the past couple weeks. Our apologies. Liz has been out for her wedding and honeymoon, and my wife and I just returned from a month in Russia to bring home our new son. Both Liz and I will be back in the office again starting next week and blog postings will continue regularly at that point. We will also do some catch-up on some of the big stories that have come out over the past few weeks for those of you who might have missed them.
