Given my current circumstance, a line from a Donald Fagen song springs to mind: "Drive along the sea, far from the city's twitch and smoke..."

I'm situated seaside all this week, so new writings will be sporadic or, even better, non-existent. The normal regimen will resume next Monday, July 14.

In the meantime, I did play the Republican veepstakes game in a print column yesterday, with readers posting their own choices. Others have emailed me to lobby for this person or that. Feel free to add your own here.

Also in the meantime, I wrote a freelance piece over the weekend about the death and legacy of Jesse Helms. The folks at Obit Magazine were fine with my decision to mince no words ("Helms dedicated his life to salting the fundamental American wound").
