Local problems with, I'd guess, a terminal server have put me out of touch
with the Internet over the weekend and again last night and this morning. As
a result, no Humanist mailings. Perhaps the hiatus may be more like a strike
by professors (if noticed at all, causing relief among students) than one by
trash collectors. I am nevertheless doing what I can to see that (changing
metaphors) the bottle of milk is on your doorstep each morning. To many
Humanists, milk delivery is not a familiar service, not since childhood,
but in the land where there are two postal deliveries Monday to Friday,
one on Saturday, and almost always overnight delivery of the post, it is,
and very welcome too.
So, a boast to offset the temporary inconvenience, through a small blizzard
(remembering Toronto) of metaphors.
