I'm not sure if anyone is still reading this space, but as of today I am suspending operations on this blog.
The simple reason is that I don't feel like I'm going anywhere with it at the moment. A multi-issue personal blog such as this one is unlikely to appeal to anyone who doesn't know me personally, which defeats the point of having a public web presence. I just feel like The J Train has run its course, and probably did so a while back.
Sometime very soon I will be launching a blog devoted to the radio show. I also hope to find an outlet for writing about food and cooking. I don't feel like I have much to say about politics these days, at least nothing that isn't said much better by the time I get the words together in my head. And I'll still offer up personal musings on Livejournal and Facebook (just e-mail me for more info).
The blog will stay up for the time being, as is, so no worries about links and such.
Thanks for reading, and don't be strangers.
