I'm about to head to the airport for a bit more than two weeks of vacation. Warwick will have his hands full with the regular paper and so activity may be a bit slower than is customary. We'll provide a lot of open lines so readers can keep things lively. Send local news as well as opinions, please. S. Butts in our Hempwallace bureau is also getting into the swing of things as a periodic contributor. You'll be seeing his contributions from time to time, too. Depending on the Internet connections I find in Latvia, Estonia and other ports of call, I may check in now and again.
Meanwhile, have at it.
