I’m running through queries right now, and three of them from the past several days relate to rejections that I sent on 10/15/09. I’m resending all critical emails from that day (about 25 of them) because that’s a bit too much of a coincidence for me. I apologize for whatever glitch caused the problem.

I’m never the fastest guy in the world, but I’m a little worse than usual right now. We just had a baby last Tuesday, and the last few weeks have been slower than usual. I beg your patience. Thanks,Jake
It occurs to me that I haven’t announced our line-up yet, so here it is.
