After almost eight months I am now reviving my blog. Whether or not I still have an audience is entirely another issue. A half-year of itinerant travel is finally over and I'm back in Texas and the rains.
My decision to revive the blog is driven by the re-emergence of the creationist threat to Texas public schools (and, with luck, to a lesser extent nationally). The religious right has taken over our State Board of Education. Over the next year I will use this blog to communicate what is happening here--and, more often than not, ask for help!
