It’s a balmy 38 degrees in Chicago today.
That’s where I’m headed, to spend Christmas with my family. I’m taking an exceptionally long break, by newspaper standards — I don’t return to work until Jan. 2.
But meanwhile, you will most likely hear from our two new student-bloggers, Jesse Dutton-Kenny and Isabel Rodriguez-Vega, who tell me they’ll have time to post during their two-week vacation.
And, let’s face it. I’m sure I’ll be furtively checking the blog between shopping trips and family gatherings — hopefully, not too often. I hope you also enjoy a short (and much needed) break from school-related stress.
Happy New Year!
