I want to thank the readership for putting up with my pinch-hitting while the Monk was on holiday. I, for one, am thrilled that the Monk is back. My journalistic credentials pale beside those of the Monk's but I can attest that despite CBS' assertions that bloggers are buffoons in pajamas that even trying to keep The Key Monk modestly but responsibly updated requires substantial effort. Monk, thanks for the shot.
And to our friends, L'Shanah Tova Tikateyvu, wishing you peace, health and prosperity.
