UPDATE: Readers, after today post (which was slightly delayed thanks to Hurricane Sandy...sorry!), I'll be taking a break from publishing Friday Links for one month. I'll be spending the next few weeks learning French in Montreal, Quebec and I want to minimize my English-language blog reading while I'm there.
In the meantime, I'll still moderate comments and run my weekly scheduled articles here at CK while I'm away, and Friday Links will return on December 7th. See you in a month!
