Fellow Cornerites, sorry for the radio silence . . . and I appreciate the nice e-mails wondering what happened to me. I’ve had to take a break this week to try to get a project done that I hope to be able to talk more about in the near future. No column this weekend, but I’ll be back at my post some time next week. And remember, things may look bleak for the country, but pitchers and catchers have reported, Grapefruit games are underway, and Opening Day is just around the corner . . . right behind that snow bank!
