After taking a couple weeks of down time to travel around the Greater Chicagoland area to visit friends and family, it looks like I picked up a nasty case of stomach flu from one of the many daycare-aged children with runny noses that I encountered. Erg. Not having kids of my own appears to have ruined my immune system.
I'll be back in a couple days with more ranting posts. (Like, really Iowa? Santorum?) Happy New Year!
