Fittingly enough, amid all this "death of blogging" talk, I am going to blog a lot less over the next couple of days. A slow congressional recess seems like the right time for a reporting trip, and I'll be on the road for the next eight days. Rather then cursing at a random wifi or mifi connections as I try to weigh in quickly on something, I'll be spending a lot of time doing interviews or driving between them. The very capable Emma Roller will be blogging a bit more here if news breaks and I'm nowhere to be found.
