GOING ON HIATUS We shouldn't read too much into it. And the reluctant abandonment of a single illiberal and unconstitutional detention does little to right the wrongs of the last five years.

But you'd have to be a pessimist not to at least hope that the charging of Jose Padilla represents the beginning of a shift away from the Bush administration's practice of enshrining our leaders' darkest thoughts and most regressive tendencies in government policy.

Time will tell.

In other news, CONTRAPOSITIVE will be on hiatus for the next three weeks. Do check in now and again--there may be a post here and there. But if you're looking for hour-by-hour commentary on the prognosis of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, you'll have to turn elsewhere. (Try here.)

In the meantime, please sample the blogs linked at right if you don't already read them regularly. And feel free to use the comments window to suggest additional blogs worth reading.

We hope to be back with some fresh posts in mid-December.
