Your narrator wasn't alone in experiencing this -- the machine likewise decided to crash... and if there's such a thing as caffeine for computers, pray tell as, clearly, I haven't yet found it.

(Suffice it to say, some interesting developments have emerged... but, in the meantime, a warm East Coast welcome to the Papal Travel Advance Team, currently on the ground to finalize plans for mid-April.)
The Red Dawn might be behind us... but in its place, Scarlet Fever has broken out.
Get ready for a fun month, gang. And, as always, thanks for your patience, and everything else.
