Blogging Break:

Starting tomorrow, I'm going to take a bit of a break from regular blogging. I have committed to writing two books, and I need to focus on them. I may (probably will) occasionally chime in, especially to update things I've previously blogged about before, but if and when I do, I'm going to leave comments closed so that I don't have to moderate them, and am not tempted to spend time reading and responding to them.

You know this breaks my heart.

Good luck!

Dear Prof: Enjoy the time off. Come back rested, having studied and thought more, and ready to challenge your readers to thinking about provocative subjects and examining their assumptions. I look forward to your return.

Dear Wince and Nod: Thank you for the complement on the Hamas blog. Although time for commenting on that blog has expired, it would be rude of me not to thank you. While it was probably undeserved, my lawyer's ego is big enough to believe it.

While I frequently disagree with you, you will be missed. I look forward to your books and you coming back to blogging regularly.

Berkeley Teach-In Against the War is bringing Mearsheimer and Walt to campus this Thursday night. Should I go? It's being moderated by a Hastings professor who specializes in Islamic law, and a UCB anthro professor named Mahmood.

Tony, I wish someone would find the opportunity to ask M &W about their pernicious and ignorant reference to Eliott Abrams in their book, that I blogged about a couple of weeks ago.

Enjoy your time away, Professor. I'll miss ya'.

I'm going to miss the posts about Israel and Judaism the most. I still have some serious questions that I'm hoping you'll get around to addressing at some point down the road. Good luck with your books ...
