Tomorrow, Susan and I will fly to Paris for a long planned three week stay. I confess to feeling that I am abandoning ship, but the truth is that I will be as clued in there as here about the horrible things that are happening, and with the exception of showing up to events in person, I can do there everything I can do here [international calls are free with my phone service.] n a moment I will launch this week’s Friday List. My own contributions are meager, principally because despite attempts, I have been unable to get through to the offices of either of my senators. I take that as a good sign.
