Jack Bog's Blog, by Jack Bogdanski of Portland, Oregon

This blog was in active operation from July 6, 2002 to April 5, 2013, with a brief outage in July and August of 2004. It has now gone on indefinite hiatus. We're taking a year or more off to work on a major writing project in our professional life. This site will remain in place as an archive, but no new content will be added. We are grateful to our readers and advertisers for 10-plus great years. We'll re-evaluate this site when the writing project is done. -- Jack Bogdanski
