From what I can tell, the only thing less conducive to blogging than returning home jet-lagged from a weeklong philosophy-and-beer binge is returning home jet-lagged from a weeklong philosophy-and-beer binge to a two-year-old bedmate who has decided to wake up early and often. (“Papa’s here!” he exclaims at 5:30am the morning after I arrive home around midnight.) I’ve got a couple of Caritas in Veritate posts queued up and some other healthcare blogging I hope to get to soon, but at present I feel as if I’m recovering from minor surgery. So in the meantime thanks for your patience, all.
