On the topic of the new look for this page: I realize that there is now no visible way to get to the archives, other than to click through "Previous" repeatedly. I plan to fix that eventually. You can always jump right to them if you so desire. I also removed the "other side of the story" link which was apparently more popular than I realized, so I'll look at reinstating that as well if I can do without throwing off my new aesthetic.
Birthday party for the kids this weekend, looks like the forecast calls for sun. Hope to see you there!
