Barbara's absence

I am very pleased (and relieved) to announce something Barbara asked me to announce.

She has been absent from OL for a while because she has been ill. She also has not been answering her emails because she has not been using her computer due to being in the hospital.

Well, folks, she's out of the hospital and back at home and much, much better. I will let her discuss the nature of the illness she had if she wishes since that is the polite thing to do, but I will say that it's nothing extreme like cancer.

She should be bopping around here before too long. (She told me she is raring to go to rip Obama a new one—my language of course, not her classy way of saying it. :) )

And most likely she will do some catching up on her emails.

I know we all have missed her.

Michael
