Attribute it in large part to the fact I had the pleasure of arguing before the South Dakota Supreme Court Wednesday morning in Yankton. Naturally, preparation for that consumed a bit of my time.

Other deadline demons are also lurking. In other words, my blogging prime directive has kicked in: real life takes priority.
Reality has always had too many heads
