Technical difficulties continue
On top of the blogging problems, my primary email account has been down all day. Got the problem straightened out, but I'm not sure it's going to be working before I leave tomorrow morning. So, if you're trying to get ahold of me, be patient, it's probably going to take a few days at this point.

Here's the deal
If you look up at the top of your browser, you'll see that you've been rerouted to a different address, as the site has been transferred to our new host, Pair.com (and big thanks to them, by the way, for getting our new account activated in record time). The good news is that all the disabled pages are up and running again. The bad news is that until we get the IP switched over, we've got this sort of patchwork system in place which requires me to go through about six extra steps every time I post a blog entry. Which means that blogging will be a little constrained for another couple of days.
So I'm going to cram a whole bunch of links I've been wanting to post into a single entry here, and you'll just have to forgive me the unwieldy format.
--Before his death, a key defector said Iraq had destroyed all its chemical and biological weapons.
--"It's not going to be antiseptic": Pentagon plans to unleash 3,000
--An article on the US dirty tricks campaign against UN Security Council delegations. This hasn't received much coverage in the US media, but it's a huge story overseas.
--T-shirts of treason: the wrong screen-printed message can get you arrested.
--A song for our times.
--A lengthy rebuttal of Kenneth Pollack's arguments in favor of war.
--The librul media: MSNBC fires Donahue, hires this guy.
--And speaking of: Eric Alterman is challenging Bernard Goldberg and Ann Coulter to a debate. (Ann Coulter's speaking fee is $20,000? Jesus Christ on a crutch.)
And, of course, there's always room for an unscientific poll. This one is on the site of Senator Bill Frist, and right now it's 66% to 33% in favor of the war.

I'll be at St. Lawrence University on Friday to give a talk, in conjunction with an exhibition of my work currently on display through April 5 in the Richard Brush gallery. Between the current site headaches and that trip, I doubt if I'll have too much more for you here this week, but the links page is functional again, and there are many fine bloggers there for you to peruse in the meantime.

There's a surprise
A reader alerts me to the fact that the teachers-taunting-children story was, as I suspected, nonsense.
A few days after a flap over some educators in Maine schools allegedly making inappropriate, negative comments to members of military families, the head of the Maine Army National Guard says it has been blown out of proportion. And Maine teachers say educators typically take an even-handed approach to sensitive issues in the classroom.
The hate-Americans-first types are always awfully quick to jump on these things, aren't they?

...but I'm not going to be able to post much for a day or two. Also, there's a chance the site might go down for a few days due to this bandwidth nonsense, so if you come here and get a 404 sometime this week, don't worry, I haven't been shut down by John Ashcroft--I'm just getting things switched over to the new host. Lousy timing, I know, but there's not much I can do about it.
Quick update: I don't know why the cartoon is not posted on Salon today. Ask them, not me. (Unless this is another holiday? I'm a freelancer, I can never keep track of these things...)
