Regular readers — or for the past several months, and even earlier, non-readers — will know that Discriminations has been inactive lately, on leave (although I hope not absent without leave). That has been due to some ongoing medical issues, first mentioned in passing here. I will not bore you (or me) with the details, since it now appears that I’m emerging from them and can begin to see, as they say, the light at the end of the tunnel. I will add, however, that I thought I saw that light a couple of time earlier … and it turned out not to be a light but a lightning bug. So stay tuned….
