While awaiting excuses on behalf of Karl Rove
My Weekly stuff goes thusly: this (11 or so sprinkled throughout), this (right at the bottom), this (fourth down), and, as ever, this. Meanwhile, I will never, ever understand this. Kudos on the if-brief nod to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, which seems to be unainmously agreed upon as the real deal, albet only from those who've actually read the series.
Those doubtless breathlessly awaiting posts of substance, actual or attempted, will, alas, have to wait a hair longer.
