Liberal Values Is Back Up and Running

After being down for over twenty-four hours we’re back up. Actually this entire week or so appears fated to be a period of reduced posting. The cable service to my home went out for much of Sunday but I did get by primarily by using a computer outside of the home during that period. I also attempted dial up but that didn’t work very well. Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for my annual trip to the Labor Day Jazz Festival at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island which will also reduce posting.

Being down most of yesterday might have left me as the only political blog not to have commented on the Gonzales resignation. As Dana Milbank wrote, he dug his own grave and everyone seemed happy to dance on it.

The other major news while the blog was down was yet another sex scandal from the party of family values. As David Kurtz also writes, I’m not sure that what Senator Larry Craig did justified prosecution.On the other hand, his behavior sure was suspicious, both in the men’s room and in how he handled it afterwards.

Next I’ll have to go back over the items I’ve flagged in my RSS reader and decide which are still worth posting (as time allows while I get ready to leave town for an extended holiday weekend).

Update: It looks like not everything was recovered correctly so far. At present it is not possible to read comments. The old comments are still present through the control panel, so hopefully it will only be a minor fix to make the comment section viewable again.

Update II:  Comments are back working. There are still some minor problems like comment preview is not working correctly but it looks like the blog is workable until I get back from vacation. Then I’ll probably have to give in and install the latest WordPress upgrade which will hopefully resolve the remaining issues.
