And now for a brief furlough...

I work for a newspaper, the Chicago Sun-Times. As you may know, the Sun-Times recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection -- mainly because of the money embezzled by its former owner, Conrad Black, who is now in prison. The Sun-Times is also contractually obligated to pay his legal bills, believe it or not. Anyway, everybody I know on the editorial side has been told to take a mandatory one-week unpaid furlough, during which time we are not allowed to work. Mine is now. I'll be back the day after Labor Memorial Day (May 27).

In the meantime, please keep commenting. I can't respond, but somebody will continue to approve comments in my absence. See ya soon!
