This blog is embargoed until June 30: I’m going on vacation
My wife and I are leaving tomorrow for a 10-day-long vacation during which I don’t plan to have much, if any, web access. So go ahead, journalists, break all the embargoes you want. Press officers, come up with freakishly bizarre embargo policies. Keep up the short embargo race. Ingelfinger yourselves into oblivion.
In the spirit of coming close to, but not quite, breaking the embargo on where we’re going, I won’t name the place. I’ll just say that it’s a country whose name is a bird in English, and that sources say there is a city there that was once called Constantinople.
Oh, and the only kind of embargoes I know about there involve trade, particularly the arms trade. Of course, if there are any Embargo Watch readers in this unnamed country, please ping me today or tomorrow.
I’ll be sure to catch up on all of the activity once I’m back, and I look forward to seeing lots of tips in my inbox, as always.
