A brief blog hiatus as a grant deadline strikes again!

Regular readers, pining for their fix of Insolence, both Respectful and not-so-Respectful, have noted that there has not been anything truly new published on this blog in a week. The explanation is simple. I have a grant deadline next Friday, and I’m way, way, way behind where I should be one week from the deadline. This is true even though the deadline was extended four days due to the coronavirus pandemic.

I will have my usual revised and repurposed post from another source posted here on Monday, but between now and a week from Monday whether I manage to produce truly new material will depend on how much progress I manage to make this weekend digging myself out of this hole and getting the grant application back on track. I’ll be working at home four straight days because, given the coronavirus situation, all appointments on Friday and Monday have been canceled, and I don’t have any operations until Tuesday. It is truly causing me pain not to be able to comment on some of the craziness going on right now, but I know that the craziness will still be there in a week or ten days. Hopefully I will too.

In the meantime, feel free to peruse the archives. Maybe I’ll resurrect some old “classic” (if you can call them that) posts to fill the time between now and when I’m out from under my deadline.
