Hey everybody. Your old pal Skippy is heading to the wilds of Pennsylvania on Thursday to attend the wedding of a cousin-in-law I may or may not have ever met. I not worried though - I've never met a vacation I didn't like. The Girlfriend is also pretty happy to have an excuse to force me out my usual Hawaiian shirts and into a tie.
In any event, the in-laws' house exists in a bizarre alternate reality where 28.8kb modems still exist, so I'm not going to be online at all until at least next Wednesday.1 I haven't exactly been machine-gunning posts lately, so its not going to be much of an interruption. That said, I'm going to turn on moderation for all comments while I'm gone because I don't want the place to be swamped with loons and spam when I get back.
Your homework while I'm away is to read John Githongo's article Fear and Loathing in Nairobi from the current issue of Foreign Affairs.
