If the blog is looking a bit dull, it's because it's silly season. No substantive news equals no fits of apoplexy at the keyboard equals no frothing at the mouth posts.
In the meantime, I'm wasting too much time playing with my NationState. I've just spent a few days lobbying over six hundred virtual UN delegates to get a proposal on the ballot, only to have it fail to make quorum. < sigh >... maybe next time.
