Difficulties with viewing the Blog itself and with opening comment threads have been reported to me. Is this still occurring? I’m not experiencing those problems. However, I was having a problem opening some links this morning and cleaned out my cache of temporary Internet files. Took about three minutes. That seemed to ungum things for me, but that may only be coincidental to problems others have reported.

If you are still having problems, please let me know, here or at max@arktimes.com

And if you want to make this an open thread, that’s OK, too.
