The Monk is going to trial and will be out of the loop until sometime in Idonotknowwhen. The trial is expected to last from 6-8 weeks. Depending on arrangements I may be in the office some of the time, and most of the Fridays b/c hizzoner is only holding trial from Monday thru Thursday (and only from 9-5 -- add 90 minutes for lunch and 2 15-minute breaks daily and we have unionization!).
Wongdoer will hold down the fort and I will post occasionally. The loss to you (the four of you who actually read this) is lack of baseball and NCAA Tourney insight as the latter ends and the former begins. Then again, if my baseball insight is as good as my NCAA Tourney insight this year, I could win millions betting against myself.
