There will be no news or opinions on Tuesday. While we are fortunate not to be in the path of Hurricane SANDY, many of our fellow Americans are, and this space is devoted to the request that you remember them in your thoughts and prayers.
By all reports, the impacts from the storm surge are severe, and things may get worse. If you are able, please donate to your preferred charity. For example, the American Red Cross, or the Salvation Army.
Update on why: Lights out in Manhattan.
