Even though I haven't been blogging for a while, the reason is not, I repeat, is not, because I have expired. The real reason is that I've been incredibly busy with academics. But never fear! Once this week is over I plan to start blogging regularly again. I hope this relieves those of you who suspected that the Darwinians had finally caught up with me and I was merely a smoldering heap. However, I also know that many of you are not relieved, since many of you would look forward to the prospect of my expiration.
