Happy New Year!

Wow. That was some break. Sorry about that.

I was spending some quality time with the family.

I checked in once, only to find a challenging comment left on my post regarding Kris knives. I did leave a response there answering the question about my research. If anyone has anything legitimate to add to this discussion, I'd appreciate it.

I do try to research my posts about substantive subjects, but my research is only as good as the sources to which I have access. Since this is a web log, not an academic setting, I don't typically cite my sources in MLA format, but I'm usually happy to mention my sources. If you have different information, I want to hear about it (assuming you'll be polite...) and it's even better if you also can describe your sources.

Recent events -- such as the challenging (sometimes rude) comments, the recent discovery of a person "cut-and-pasting" several posts, and some issues in the larger blogosphere about intellectual property -- caused me to consider the future of this blog during my break. I'm considering several changes over the course of the year. Stay tuned.

I certainly hope your blog continues. Although the chance to comment seems to present itself rarely (as the posts are largely complete and lacking in open questions or avenues of debate), there are certainly those out here still reading, even if doing so quietly ...

And when you get a comment from the great Zarquon, you know you have arrived. After all we have been waiting oh so long for his return.
