I’ve got no column in the current Time, and I won’t be in the next issue either (Person of the Year). Then we’re taking a week off from magazine making before returning with an issue the first week of January. I’ve been using the time to yes, yet again, try to make my book manuscript a part of my past. In the interest of speeding that process, I’m going to go slow on the blogging for the next couple of weeks. I’ll still post when I feel the urge, but doubt I’ll keep to any kind of daily schedule. And the posts might be heavy on things like, say, photos of the Curious Capitalist family’s first batch of Christmas cookies.
